you guys YOU GUYS!

I have been miserably inactive on here because I have been doing ALL THE RESEARCH for my next project!

It's pretty set that it's going to be steampunk YA in a slightly-alternate-history post-gold rush Colorado.  My internet activity for the last month has basically been Colorado history, railroading history, Mexican, Californian, Native American (mostly Ute), and Chinese history, with a bunch of Victorian occultism and world mythology thrown in, because steampunk.

EEEE and my interlibrary loan about railroading technology in the nineteenth century just came in!  It's four volumes and there are technical drawings.  I'm ridiculously excited.

My roommate is probably getting tired of me ranting about the gauge controversy and narrow gauge fever.  (Gauge is how far apart the rails are on a train track.)
