I just got this one off of Ebay. For anyone who wants to know the details of acquisitions, mergers, or that the LN&E used concrete fence posts to protect & keep farm animals off ROW. This is the book. Some pictures of Sussex area that I have not seen before also.

John,
 
That looks just like the one I picked up at the last Allentown train show. There was a table there from some organization or club that was selling them.

Received my copy from Mike yesterday. Only had a chance to thumb through it, but there are some really interesting photos.
 
Some of the Randy Kulp photos are very similar to the shots in the LNE DVDs I produced. The book and the DVDs compliment each other and together help make following the LNE through time and location more thorough.
 
When I get more time, I will go through it more thoroughly.

I really enjoyed this book. Mike did a nice job covering the L&NE system from end-to-end, including good coverage of the hard-coal area near Tamaqua, looks at the Allentown and Schoenersville branches and the east end at Stockertown and Uhlers.  
 
I think this compliments the previous "Trackside around the Pennsylvania Cement District" book very well, and as John mentioned, his series of video on the Lehigh and New England videos (which I still need to invest in).
 
In my opinion, this book is well worth the cost.
