‘Mainline Cooking’ with the GIA

CLEVELAND, May 1 — A cookbook containing recipes submitted by railroaders for railroaders is now available through the BLET’s spousal group, the Grand International Auxiliary (GIA).

Titled “Mainline Cooking,” the cookbook is being sold as a fund-raiser for the GIA. The book is chock-full of delicious recipes submitted by BLET/GIA members and their families from all parts of the United States and Canada.

It contains more than 300 recipes and is bound in a hardback three ring binder (7" x 9 1/4") that opens easily for adding or removing recipes.

“This book will make an excellent addition to your cooking library as well as a great gift idea for young and old alike,” said Onita Wayland, International President of the GIA.

The book also contains humorous quotes, a section on railroadese, railroaders’ stories, and great tips on eating healthy while working on the railroad.

All proceeds, except postage and handling, benefit the GIA. Each book is $15. There is a charge of $5 shipping and handling for U.S. orders (Hawaii, Alaska and international orders should e-mail the GIA for shipping costs.)

Please make your check or money order payable to the "GIA to BLE," and send it along with your name and address to:

Mart, TX 76664
