Hi Randy I was looking at some Australian model sites today an found a copy of Kalmbach's steam cyclopedia what a shock to see the price $100.00 australian dollars , I hope to see your research in the future. Keith

Keith:

I don't know the current exchange rate, but that sounds about right. The Cyclopedia retails in the mid $40s US Dollars. I don't yet own a copy but am on the lookout for one.

Also you might have a look at The Bach Shops web site. www.thebackshops.com/ A bit expensive for single uses but if you have mates or a club in need of specific blue prints?

Entirely off point question: Is there an organization of Australian modelers interested in US railroads? If so, do they have an information sharing arrangement, formal or informal?
