The sad news spread through the anthracite railroad and industrial history world this week that longtime publisher and book dealer Paul A. Kuehner, of Rails 'n' Shafts, passed away.

I only knew Paul in terms of a retailer/customer relationship, but I always enjoyed chatting with him. Often, our club would visit his mail order shop on one of the few days each year it was open.

While I enjoyed the good prices and service offered, the real treat were the books Paul published under the Garrigues House imprint. These gems of the anthracite region are treasured volumes in my library.

I last talked to Paul at the Spring Thaw meet in Allentown a few weeks ago. It was nice to see him. I never thought it would be the last time.

Canal buffs, mining fans and railfans have lost a friend.

Thank you, Paul, rest in peace.
