Description

A must for any Canadian railroad aficionado, this special bundle gathers six books in one for a can’t-miss retrospective of the nation’s railway history.

Rails Over the Mountains
Explore western Canada’s rich railway history, travelling from the grand railway hotels and rustic stations to relive a time when trains used to rumble in the West.

Rails to the Atlantic
Explore eastern Canada’s railway heritage, including stations from the late 1850s, grand hotels, bridges, and roundhouses.

The Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore
Once the lifeblood of Canada, railways and heritage stations are a fading part of the patrimony of communities across the nation.

Rails Across Ontario
Train buffs and history lovers now have a book that explores the heritage of Ontario’s railways, from its oldest stations to its highest bridges, most glamorous hotels and historic train rides.

Rails Across the Prairies
Canada’s rail lines were pivotal in establishing the icons that mark today’s landscape: massive bridges, sentinel-like grain elevators, pattern-book wayside stations.

In Search of the Grand Trunk
Discover the legacy and lore of Ontario’s railway era by exploring the lost and abandoned rail lines that once were essential to the province’s well-being.
