This section covers the new 2018/19 editions of color books produced by LPD Publishing Ltd. Rail Canada vol. 5 was relatively easy to produce in color as the basic format was retained including the color photo section. Rail America volume 1 had the color photo section moved to the back and the late arrivals section increased in size, this resulted in only 5 or 6 pages being added. For Rail Canada vol. 1 considerable work was required, as the original drawings were hand made and required a complete redraw of the original material and the two drawings per page made space for many additional photos. This resulted in 28 additional pages without a separate color section. The only other candidate for coloriziing would be a PGE/BCR Diesels in color book where most of the original drawings are available, we will see if there is any interest in that project.
