Dear All, it is this time of the year again. I just noticed that there are about 24 days left … and no, I do not have all gifts yet … not even one! And then amazon may be your friend - on the other hand amazon delivers even the day before Christmas. Browsing through the book section struck me like thunder (or thunder struck, as the ACDC fans, including me, feel): Holger Matthes @HoMa "is writing" the 2cnd edition of his book "LEGO®-Eisenbahn: Konzepte und Techniken für realistische Modelle", which translates to "LEGO®-Trains: Building concepts and techniques for creating realistic models". OK. I admit: I am not good at browsing through amazon's website. I am one of the old fashioned people who spend hours and hours in stores, trying to find gifts. Driving to the next LEGO store (using public transportation, as I believe in that) to feel the look and feel of a LEGO set - and to go nuts at the pick a brick wall (of course). Pretend I got a note saying: "Would you be willing to write the foreword for the second edition of my book" … I was com-ple-te-ly freaking out after realizing this email was really there: on the screen. I said "yes - when you think it is appropriate". And boom, there was the manuscript, in addition to the 1st edition. Holger ist just a fantastic person - as we all know, but this struck me again - as thunder. The book is available end of January/begin of February 2019 - I just want to make sure that no one blames me, when it is sold out after a couple of days after availability. Just this (as the text on amazon says): Updates on track systems, Powered Up, along with other updates, and … "on the making of the VT 11.5" - the Trans Europ Express. There are many, many details on how this model evolved - to an extent that I believe experienced train builders basically have an "instruction" in their hands. Not individual steps, but close enough. I will give it a try. All the best, Thorsten
