    just thought we could use a thread where people could just list good fictional books that deal with trains and/or hopping etc. nonfiction is appreciated too.
    i know that this one is nothing new to most of ya'll, but try:
    "you can't win," by jack black. it's great.

    post more so i can read on. . . .thanks
    bear

    actually this book is an autobiography. .but it's kind of embelished and ya'll get the point.
