    How about a listing of the great train books everyone's read? We've done a train songs thread, and now we've got a good train movies thread, so.... does anyone out there still read?

    I'll start, read David Baldacci's "The Christmas Train" this summer. Nice story, good characters and a little mystery, romance and adventure.

    How about "War Day". An American journalist chronicles a cross-country trip across America five years after a limited nuclear exchange takes out NYC, San Antonio, TX (I know but apparently it's a major Ops center for the Air Force), Cheyenne, WY and one or two other cities. Because the electromagnetic pulses from the weapons wiped out most electronics, the railroads again became the chief way to travel around the country. A very interesting, non-appocolyptic(?) view of the future of America.
