This is an unusual question, I know, but does anybody remember if a feature article I wrote about the Boat Race Trains was previously published in the Shoreliner and if so, which issue?  Thanks.

Mr. Frattasio. I thought I had read an article on the boat race trains, but the index only shows Mr. David L. Waddington's "Racetrack Trains" in Shoreliner, vol. 22, iss. 2, and Mr. Daniel Cronin's "More on Race Specials" in Shoreliner, vol. 22, iss 4. I checked both of those articles and did not see pictures of special flatcars with bleachers on them. Those maybe for an article on Yale games though. So, I looked at each Shoreliner I have from volume 33 back to volume 11, and did not find your article. I hope this helps some.

BOAT RACE POSTINGS
Marc --- I don't know of a Shoreliner story by you other than one scheduled for the future but if any reader is interested in the boat race cars and can't wait for your story,  I posted several bits of information including a photo of a bleacher car, a diagram of the observation cars and an excerpt from an ALONG THE LINE story.  My posts start with March 24, 2014.  An easy way to find them is go to the search box on the first page of the main Forum section and type in Observation Train Cars.  Alternatively go to the archive section or click my name on the left and scroll through the list of my posts.

Marc  -- I just got the new Shoreliner for proofing and your story is reported to be in the issue after the next  -- Vol.39 #4 is next so your article should be in Vol.40-1.  I don't know of an earlier story in the Shoreliner.

I've written so much for the Shoreliner over the years that I've lost track of what's been published and what hasn't.  I'd swear that the Boat Race Train article had already been published some years ago, but could be wrong about this.
