267 pp, oblong 8vo (8 3/4" H x 11 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, maps, timetables. "Known as the Oakville Subdivision, Canadian National's main line between Toronto and Hamilton was Canada's busiest railway throughout the steam era. Canadian Pacific had running rights over the line for both freight and passenger traffic and since they pooled their locomotives with both the Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo Railway and the New York Central there was a wide variety of power used. This volume provides a complete pictorial coverage of a typical day watching trains in the last two decades of steam operation." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny dint on top edge of front board. Dust jacket has moderate to heavy edge wear/creasing, seveal small edge tears archivally taped, now protected in a mylar sleeve.
