If you go to train shows you will often see hugely inflated prices on
books. This gives the dealer some elbow room to bargain, plus there is a
chance that a sucker will actually pay the asking price.

When you start seeing railroad books going for much over $100 you should
be wary of reprints appearing soon. I talked with a friend at a GATS show
a few weeks back who told me the sad tale of how he paid hundreds of
dollars for a copy of "Ghost Railroads of Tennessee" about a year before
I.U. press reprinted it. (Now available for about $40.) Indiana
University Press has done the rail community a great service by leading
the way in reprinting rail books.
