Getting Started with Big Big Train

IMG_2762
The collection.

As most of you already know, progarchy began almost four years ago as an unofficial Big Big Train-fan site.  We’re now getting to the point where our BBT offerings are looking a bit chaotic.

Here’s a helpful starting guide for those of you interested in getting to know BBT better.

Several years ago, I wrote a piece called “A Beginner’s Guide to Big Big Train.”  This is an addition to that.
