Belated Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and MANY Thanks!

Hello all! Dad and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone we encountered at our most recent events; Gratiot Valley Train Show, the town of Ashley, MI (a destination for the Pere Marquette 1225 this year), Just Imagine in Chelsea, MI, The Henry Ford Museum (Members night and Gift Shop appearances), and Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village.

It was a tough season for us this year, our patriarch Arnold Roll (Grandpa) passed away in late October. He was a wonderful man and was an inspiration for the Trains of Christmas book and is sorely missed. Grandpa started our family on putting the train up around the Christmas tree, something we all continue to do to this day.

Many thanks again to everyone who picked up a book or stopped by to say hello. Here's some pictures from some of the events we went to. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everybody!

Thank You National Toy Train Museum!

Hello All! We just wrapped up a book signing at the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg, PA. Thank you to everyone who purchased a book and a special thank you to Jane Boyce for being such a great host. If you are ever in the Strasburg, PA area be sure to check out the museum. It's a top notch attraction, like something out of Walt Disney World, with a ton of great toy trains and layouts to look at. Signed editions of The Trains of Christmas are available at their gift shop.

Next stop for us will be December 3rd at Just Imagine toy shop in Chelsea, MI and at The Henry Ford on December 11-12. Stay tuned, more to come. Merry Christmas everybody!
