Today I had lunch with my father, Michael Palmieri, and we discussed a number of ideas about this website. I expressed my interest in hosting some of his writings on this site and specifically asked if he would write a essay about someone who had a very influential model railroad in our home town, Mr. Frank Ellison.
Mr. Ellison's concept analogy comparing a model railroad to a theatrical stage is classic. This is a theme I allude to many places on this site as I attempt to create the perfect "stage" for the Meridian Speedway.
Much to my delight my father had already written such an article that was posted on his Louisiana Railroad website which, sadly, disappeared at the hands of Hurricane Katrina. He e-mailed me that article within a few hours.
I have created the "Library" page on this site where that article is available for viewing.
Also, with this blog posting I am creating a "What's New" category for this site to aid viewers in finding new content. If all goes well I will link this category under the home page.
If any of you would like to contribute material to the Library please sent me your ideas via this "Contact" link.
