Burlington Route Tower Cartoonist presents a unique look at the world of model railroading and "train spotting" (a.k.a. railfanning) featuring the art of Don Lomax, a former Burlington Railroad employee turned professional cartoonist. Lomax is the creator of "The Boys in the Basement," a cartoon that takes a humorous look at railroad enthusiasts as originally published in the pages of Model Railroading magazine. The "Boys" are Merle and and his friends, Lenny and Earl. The trio attempt to build the perfect model railroad layout in Merle's basement -- while otherwise attempting to convince the world that it's perfectly normal to love trains! Also featured is an introduction by Randy Lee, editor of Model Railroading, and Lomax's own account of working for the Burlington in Illinois. Rail enthusiasts and the people who love them will appreciate Lomax's talent to humorously depict what it's like to be a train aficionado.
