Product Details


"Sam Posey’s volume of grand passions and Lilliputian vehicles offers all the satisfactions of a great rail journey through soaring, unspoiled American terrain." — Michael Pollan

"This book deals with toys, but it’s really about a man’s inner life. It’s bright and touching and shows a subversive sense of humor." -Paul Newman

"With the empathy and insight that could only come from a true hobbyist, PLAYING WITH TRAINS takes the reader on a trip through the model railroading world and introduces us to some of the hobby’s most interesting personalities. The journey is personal, friendly and welcoming, and I found it immensely enjoyable." -Terry D. Thompson, Editor, Model Railroader Magazine
