I got my copy of "FROM THE PLATFORM" over the weekend,dope book "CAVS"and "KEY".I said it before and I'll say it again,it would of been a terrible loss if these trains were not documented.You look at the subway stations and the trains now and it looks like that time period in the 1980's never took place.I like those rooftop shots in the book,it really gives you a feel like your right there.Shout out to COLE T. ONLY and all the photographers back in the day for the dedication ya'll put into it.Both books,"FROM THE PLATFORM",and "STEEL WHEELS" filled that mid to late 1980's gap of train flicks nicely.

Ive been coming to New york for some time now and in the days before the internet was such an accesable part of our daily lives the private collections of writers were like the holy grail to anyone traveling to New York City, and something for the most part that seemed almost mythical, very rarely did you see any pictures at all, certain names came up every time as to had the most pictures and Cavs name was always one of them, these days with the internet flooded with train pictures its pretty rare to see something that you’ve never seen before, this has plenty, almost 200 pages, page after page of herny style panoramic pics of the whole cars, get it on amazon.

Amazon is saying my copy of "From The Platform" will be arriving today, can't wait !!! It's going to be a nice long evening of cold Schaefers and classic writing history enjoyment ! Many, many thanks to all those who are now putting their archives and stories into print to share with all, and to help permanently preserve the history of the writing culture.

From The Platform is a fantastic book, definitely the best collection of classic white train action ever printed to this day ! I haven't seen at least 80-90% of those photos before, so many burners. Don't hesitate to pick this one up !
