    Mine’s arrived (unsigned :( never mind :) ) - looks great.
    Tonight’s dilemma- should I watch part 1 of Peter Jackson’s new Beatles trilogy - or read SAC Martin’s book?

    If you do see me around the network you know I will always be happy to sign it :)

    Beatles first, the book will still be there tomorrow!

    Delighted that so many copies are getting out there. I am on tenterhooks to hear people's points of view (positive or negative).

    I have a copy of the book, unnumbered, but now mercilessly scribbled in with notes and corrections (mostly grammatical). If we ever do another print run, I have a few things I want to sort!

    If you go on Strathwood Publishing (link in my sig) you will find a 3 for 2 offer on today, to that effect.

    Just ordered my copy (yeah, I know I'm behind the times ...) Don't worry, I'm not going all LNER, I got the latest instalment of the George Reeve series on LSWR mainlines alongside, and a copy of "The book of the S15s" for free :)

    I was privileged enough to see an early draught of Simon's book to proof read, so I will be interested to see how it developed over the last 18 months or so since then.
