What Terry Coats has produced is good, thorough, interesting, and readable. He adds to the body of works that herald Grandpa’s Road and contributes to a lasting foundation of support that will endure long past our lifetimes.

What a wonderful resource! I was expecting a dry reference book on structures and depots, and was blown away by the history, anecdotes and stories as well as the multitude of photos. The index alone makes it "must have" for anyone interested in Grandpa's Road!
