And there were, in the same country, Coast Line fans, gnashing their teeth, and watching the introduction of railroad books covering every road but theirs with extreme indignation. And suddenly, Bob Yanosey appeared, and the glory of Morning Sun Books shown round about him, and the Coast Line fans were sore afraid that this would be yet another railroad book. And Bob said unto them, "Fear not, for behold, I bring you great tidings of joy, which shall be unto all Purple People, for unto you, this day, from the wilds of New Jersey, comes an all-color book on Coast Line rolling stock. And this shall be a sign unto you. Ye shall find the book, resplendent in purple and silver, at your local hobby shop, on, or after February 1, 2000, at the retail price of $54.95." And there was with Bob, a host of ACL contributors, singing, and praising Bob, saying, "Glory to Morning Sun Books and the author, and to all Coast Line fans, peace, good will on earth." And the Coast Line fans said, one to another, "Let us go to the local hobby shop and purchase many copies of this book, and make the author and publisher rich." And all was happy in the land, and the lamentations and gnashing of teeth ceased.
Coming from Morning Sun Books, on February 1, 2000, the Atlantic Coast Line Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment, by Paul Faulk. OK Purple People, the line forms to the right.

Interesting thought, but I better take a pass on that one..... but having seen the book this past weekend, I can tell you that you'll be tempted to buy that many, by whatever means you can!

I'll take 8 if we can use your credit card.

If Morning Sun comes through as promised, you betcha......so David, are you taking 6 copies? 8? 10?
-- Larry Goolsby (LGoolsby@aphsa.org), January 21, 2000.
Does this mean, per chance, that there may be copies of this puppy for sale at the annual hysterical society meeting in Jax? Huh, tell me please.

I have seen the proofs, and they are great. The book is on schedule for a 2/1/00 introduction.

At last, for those of us who have long wandered in the vast wilderness, searching desperately for all things purple and silver, yet finding but little to sooth the pain caused by such hunger, can it be true? Our time has come!

Lest we forget the scripture in the Book of Elvis, Chapter two, verse four: "The whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang" Kudos to Paul and Morning Sun!

And yeah verily they danced their merry dance of things Coastline, and celebrated all things purple! What a year. E-3 501 is now owned by my employer and lives in Spencer in the roundhouse, Larry's book hits the stands and is enjoyed by all, HO E-6s arrive after many years of frustration, and now this book. Yippppeeeee!!!! :-) Marc Hamel, NCDOT Rail Division
