I found a book, title escapes me right now, that I read on my flight to San Francisco last fall. It deals with all the politics, logistics, and problems that the RR builders faced. It is fascinating, considering the technology of that time! I'll get the title as I loaned it to my son.

That was very cool, thanks Harry.

The making of the movie is interesting at least. I've heard the movie itself isn't. As John points out, the true stories behind the movies are often far more interesting than the movies they make about them.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Great Harry, best video yet. I don't care what the critics say about the movie, I really liked it. Thanks. Now more, in the same vein.

Harry, James.

Do you know something about Mike? I knew that he had some health troubles and wrote a PM to him but, until now no answer from him.
