Please extend my thanks and appreciation to Jeff Wilson and all the the staff who put together the latest book "The Model Railroader's Guide to Grain". The exceptional setup of the text, content, layout, charts, photos and more made this a book that you had to keep reading. I especially enjoyed the lead-in to the topic with current production followed by the evolution of the industry. Further, there were many "so that's why they did it that way" or "why that happened" moments. For example, why did they first build elevators 8 to 10 miles apart (day trips for horse teams) and how the April 1963 Supreme Court decision allowing free enterprise in rate setting led to great advances and profitability for the railroads. This book would be a great text book for any school or college. In closing, thank you to all for explaining how the grain transportation industry works. Looking forward to future books. Andrew Tait
