Snapshots In Time: The S&G Railroad is a true story about the relationship a Grandparent and Grandchild share. The multi-generational aspect of their “journey” together make it a must read for children, parents, and grandparents. You will travel through time with them on a journey neither of them expected nor were fully prepared for. The sense of mystery and adventure throughout this very personal account make this an extremely enjoyable and informative experience and one with which we are confident you will identify. We welcome you to share our journey with us and travel to the turn of the century to the present and into the future as well. Expect the unexpected throughout your journey with us, just as we did! Today more than ever, our children need our love, guidance and especially our time. Years from now, we will not regret the things we have done as much as we will regret those we have not done. The author hopes that you will “read between the lines” and perhaps create a “journey” of your own. Do not let the love, sense of wonder, adventure and mystery deceive you. They are all part of an extraordinary story you are certain to identify with. They will uplift your spirit and motivate you as well. The original manuscript was written to chronicle our "journey" through time together. I wanted to leave something behind so that my grandson would always remember the memorable times we had together. We are now sharing our journey through time with you! Come and travel through time with us. You will find yourself transported back in time to the 1800s and into the future as well! Together we will learn how to build a model railroad layout, laugh quite a bit, and take expeditions to places you never thought you would go! The heartwarming, emotional aspects of our story may even make you shed a tear or two as you will no doubt see much of yourself in our story. The very nature of our journey through time together, along with our shared experiences, make this one of the most sincere true stories you may read for quite some time. We are confident you will enjoy it and hope you will laugh along with us and that your tears will be tears of joy!
A Grandmothers Review
By Melanie Telfer on Feb 08, 2014
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Snapshots in Time. Primarily due to the fact that I am a new grandmother for the first time and could identify with the experiences that happen with the Author and his grandson and could visualize having many of the same experiences in the years to come with my twin grandsons. The comments from Samy and his take on the expeditions he shared with his grandpa were honest and pure. Time really is the most important gift you can give a child. Snapshots in time brought to life the wonder and joy spending time with your grandchildren can bring you and how rich the rewards can be. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to impact a child's life and their own by sharing the most important gift......time......
What an inspiration! There is hope for the next generation

I couldn't put this book down. Being a grandparent, I could relate to the loving relationship between a grandfather and grandson as they embark on a journey together. I could share in the excitement of this young child as he learned about simpler times through his grandfather. Christmas is coming and I will buy this book for all the grandfathers that I know.

What a delightful story! If you are a grandparent who enjoys sharing history and adventure with your grandchildren then this is a must read for you! I couldn't put the book down as it was such an enchanted and yet compelling story. It captures all of the innocence and purity of a child's imagination though various stages of his growth and development. And it is a testament to all the love that a grandparent can have for his grandchild. I bought several more copies after I read the first one and I too plan on giving them as gifts to all my friends who have grandkids! I can t wait for the next story about Samy and his Grandpa!!!!!!I

After reading this book all I can say is WOW! The author's use of the word "journey" was spot on. I felt I was there with them. If you are looking for a heartwarming story, love your children and grandkids, are tired of the erosion of values in our country, have an interest in model railroads or history or simply enjoy working with your kids and grandkids this book is for you. I intend to purchase more to give as presents. Easy to read and could not put it down. I can't wait for this authors next book! Thank You Robert Michaels!!
