Where to buy it


The history and humour of a "forlorn" little train, and the people and commodities that it carried.
This book is a lively, at times humorous account of the Cape Breton Railway and of its service to the peoples of Richmond County in the first decades of the twentieth century. Illustrated with photographs, drawings and railway ephemera, it presents a charming portrait of this fascinating Nova Scotian region.
All Aboard offers a rare glimpse at a bygone era in Nova Scotian transportation history.
