128 pp, 11 15/16" H, soft cover. Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w with photographs, maps, reproductions. "The railway age in Canada began on July 21, 1836, when the tiny locomotive, 'Dorchester', made its inaugural run on the Champlain and St. Lawrence Rail Road. (This book) tells the fascinating story of this country's passenger railways and their development over the past 150 years. Historical and full-color photographs reflect the romance of the railway and capture many beautiful scenes from the Canadian landscape that can only be seen from the train. This is a story of hopes and dreams and obstacles overcome. It is a story of farsighted people who dared to make those dreams come true and who helped to forge a na t i o n o u t of this huge, rugged land." Interior - Christmas and date note on half-title page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - light to moderate edge wear, a few small scuffs on spine, minor curling at corners.
