SUMMARY
Rail enthusiasts are a hardy lot. Whether it's enduring all kinds of weather to get that perfect picture, pitching in at the nearby preserved line, restoring engines, goods, and carriage stock, researching and reading about their favourite railway or engine class, they are dedicated, steadfast, and loyal. Meet 'Diesel Dan' Settles, Chair of DOSE: Deltic Admirers (and) Steady Enthusiasts. Join Dan and his small but earnest band as they seek to save an example of an engine class most cherished. Daunting circumstances present themselves time after time; will they prevail in the end? Join them in their quest.
AUTHOR BIO
Jeff's love of trains began at age two when he received his first model train set with a figure eight track. From there his interests (and layout) grew to include steam engines, steampowered excursions, railway history and rail photography. Retired from a career in education, he enjoys pursuing his hobbies such as train watching and photographing, reading, history, riding a bike, listening to classical music, viewing films from the silent and golden Hollywood eras and writing. What was the motivation, then, for writing the novel? "Having missed the end of steam in Great Britain by one year, and restricted from experiencing the preservation scene there for economic reasons, I felt that vicarious pleasures would have to serve through the characters and stories."
