Recent Acquisitions, Part Deux

Duneland Electric by Donald R. Kaplan
I journeyed up to Timonium, Maryland last weekend for Howard Zane's Great Scale Train show with my neighbor Doug. He is an N scale modeler who is getting ready to build a layout for his collection.  Doug didn't have much luck at the show but I happened upon this copy of Duneland Electric by Donald R. Kaplan.  It's a great mid-eighties snapshop of the South Shore, focused on my favorite 'Duneland' area between Gary and Michigan City. Page 41 even has a couple of photos of Dune Acres, which is the inspiration for my own Mineral Springs Road flagstop.
