been expressing his frustration with the lack of unique opportunities to blast lumens at an unsuspecting subject. “It’s time to do something different!” Steve exclaimed. Looking forward, Steve realized that we will be celebrating 40 years of RAILFAN & RAILROAD in 2014. “We should do something to get the readers ex- cited about our upcoming anniversary.” With that in mind, we would like to invite


all of our readers to a special event here at the Carstens Publications World Headquar- ters in Newton, N.J. The staff of R&R will or- chestrate a special night photo shoot with our company’s 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty pick- up truck. We have several set-ups planned for this special event. First, we’ll pose the truck outside our front door so that photogra- phers can capture a ³⁄₄ view of the truck alongside the large cast “Carstens Publica- tions” sign. Next, we’ll move to the loading dock, where actors will portray Carstens em- ployees offloading cartons of the latest issue of RAILFAN. We will have authentic kerosene lanterns on hand so that the actors can pass signals from the dock to the head end. Lerro Productions will lend us some smoke bombs so that we can recreate the appropriate amounts of exhaust and ambiance. (When we asked Pete Lerro about doing the session he mumbled something about sticking smoke bombs up the tailpipe; we’re not entirely sure he was talking about the truck.) Finally, we will have the obligatory “polishing the head- lights” shot to close out the evening. We hope you’ll join us for this historic


event! The event will take place on Sunday, April 1, and we’ll start just after dusk. Please R.S.V.P. before April 1 so we know how many skyhooks to provide. — O.M.V.
