    Thank you for all of the work you put into this site. Irealize that it hasn’t been updated in a while, and that you may never see my question. But, if you do, I am looking for a copy of Trains and the Mind of Man. Is there an online copy that you know of? I cannot find it in hard copy (though I would prefer that) . regards, carol

  2. I’m still out here, Carol, and thank you for the kind words. I presume that my post at https://gentlerereader.com/2012/05/20/pilgrimage/ alerted you to “Trains and the Mind of Man” in Holiday, February 1960. My library includes many items purchased through the Advanced Book Exchange – now better known as the website AbeBooks.com – which I recommend if you want to buy a hardbound copy. I don’t know of an online source for “Trains and the Mind of Man” but some public libraries still have copies and have online catalogs of their holdings that allow you to check from home. There is another free option that we can discuss offline if you reply to my response (which I won’t post as a comment here.) Warm regards to you.
