Agreed.....passenger cars aren't the best barometer of interest, but at
the same time, if we lose our shirt on this printing, it might make the
Society's leadership a little gun shy to try another one, even if it
might be on a more popular subject.

I think we'd have a decent market for a PC locomotive book, especially
if you get the word out to rest of the model railroad community that
isn't on the net or this list.

Personally, I try to discourage "polls" and such things on my list, as
I hate the bandwidth that they waste, but if you want to flood your
list with "me too" messages, that's up to you. :-) But I don't think
you need to do a poll on your list to see the interest that's out
there--the people paying $71 and up for copies of _PC Power_ on eBay
should be proof positive that there's still a market for a good Penn
Central locomotive book.
