Next best is a money order from the U.S. Post Office only.
The slowest way with the most waiting involved: a check

Payments made with Paypal or a money order should get
your book(s) in the mail within 7 days of such receipt.
Depending on inventory levels, all orders we can fulfill
will be sent out within that 7 day time frame.

Write your name and address neatly on any money order so we
know exactly where to mail it.
 If your mailing address is different
than what is on your check, send us the info on where your order
should be sent.  If ordering more than one book, mention that with
payment so nothing gets mixed up.

Where to mail payment: To mail in your check or money order,
send to the location mentioned in the Book Feedback where the
reviews are from the magazines.

unhappy with it, you pay to return it. Mail it to us any way you want
to the address listed on the mailing label.  We will send you
replacements for any books and we will pay the shipping.  If any
book has problems send us an e-mail and let us know.
We want to make sure each book is done properly where there
won't be any issues and whatever happens in the mail is another
story.  All claims for any such issues have to be brought to our
attention within 30 days of the day we shipped your order no matter
your mailing address.

ONLYTHEBESTBOOKS@YAHOO.COM

There are no refunds. Only exchanges.
We reserve the right to limit purchases of books to any
location or for any reason.
We know you cannot find this book in most stores where you can go
through it and determine if you like it. The book descriptions are
there with sample pages. You should have a good idea of what is in
there.  It's not like we promise color photos and give you all black
and white. Everything to describe each book is accurate. You know
the trains and the years we cover. If you know what happened
those years, that's what you get inside and more. We give you a lot
of color photos to enjoy with accurate captions. What's better than
that?  Who else is even doing that anyway?  Not many I know of.
We want you to be our customers for the next books.  When you
know what we say here is true, you'll want our next books also.
