I finished reading train tracking earlier and tonight I'm gonna start reading it a second time but this time taking notes! This effect will take abit of memory work but when perfected you will have one hell of a payoff.
There is a novice presentation which atlas advices to perfect first before moving onto the master presentation, when reading the master presentation I had buttflies in my stomach its that f____ing good! I would even go to say that "to me" this is the holy grail because you are actually reading the mind of the spectator, there are no forces,nothing written down the spectator just thinks of any word and you will reveal that word at the end of the effect.

Atlas you should be REALLY proud of yourself with train tracking! Smile

I agree Kieran. I read this in one sitting as my mind digests things better having a birds eye view of the entire thing.
I shall now read over again in much more detail. I haven't changed my set for some time other than minor refinements but TT is going to change that.
I haven't even begun to practice or master it yet but I already know it will be my "go to" piece and will massively augment my current work.
Genius!

You guys have revved my mind into overdrive with excitement about TT. I'm out at my mailbox waiting, joyfully.

Happy Birthday Atlas and to all those celebrating today.

Train Tracking is a celebration for all of us! Thanks Atlas!!!

The TT owners forum will be up and running very soon.

Traded emails with Atlas today and we are working out the details for setting up the user accounts for all TT owners.

Watch your email!

Happy Birthday Atlas - and thank you for coming up with such a gem. Smile

As others have said, it is going to take some time to master Train Tracking BUT at the start of the book Atlas describes an effect with coins. This in itself is brilliant and will be using it while I get to grips with the full method. It is a much simpler version of Train Tracking but nevertheless has great power.

I'm loving it. To use a cliche, an effect to 'get your teeth into.'

Can the method be converted to other languages?
Mainly Hindi?

Thanks!

With some (maybe a lot) work - yes.
I haven't received it yet, but talked with Atlas and other about that topic.

Received my copy of TT today, all the way out here in Seattle ... about as far away from the UK as you can get and still be in the U.S.

Mine shipped on July 14, so the rest of you should get your books in the next day or two.

I'm only 1.400 km away but postal service isn't the best here. No delivery on friday, saturday, sunday and monday - it's ridiculous; especially when you are waiting for something.

Atlas' original position on this was that TT could be adapted to any language using the A-Z alphabet. It would probably be possible with other alphabets, but since my knowledge of such languages is very limited, I can't give this guarantee. I've talked with Atlas about translation processes, and agree with him that for most common languages, there will be suitable resources easily accessed that will do the hardest part of the work for you. But once the hardest part is done, it still needs quite a creative and attuned mind to sit down and give a few hours careful thought and trialling in order to map out the "tracks". Not impossible, but I'd be doing a disservice to say that it would be a simple matter.

You're a lucky guy Steve. I'm here in Seattle too and I haven't received mine yet. Sounds like it should be soon though! Smile
Find out what you cannot do.., Then go and do it!

Just read the first time over the first track part and as far as I can say for the german language I am quiet sure that the system is adaptable. It will take some research and a bit oft try and error to find the best way but it will work.

Can't wait to discuss it in the forum with other (german speaking) people.

When the TT Forum eventually is launched, can we lock/delete this thread as it will not be necessary anymore. There is no need to discuss any aspect of Atlas work called Train Tracking but in the official forum because it is almost sold out already. Therefor let us airbrush Train Tracking here. Atlas took too much effort to keep it more or less under cover. Now as we got the chance to learn TT, we should respect that more than ever!

Received mine yesterday, lips are sealed and can't wait for the forum. Thanks Atlas and Happy Belated B-Day.

PS The TT dedication was as sweet and touching of a dedication that I've read in any book. =)
