Through the Window of a Train: A Canadian Railway Anthology
Since the first transcontinental passenger train, The Pacific Express, headed west in 1885 the railway has been part of many lives. For some the railway was their life. One needs only to mention The Moonlight Special, The CNR, The E&N, The CPR of the H&SW for memories to come flooding back. These stories retell the significance of the railway, or a single journey taken, in the lives of ordinary Canadians. Dotted with junction and siding names, engine numbers, and routes, for the rail enthusiast.
This collection features stories from across Canada, including contributions from
Manitoba authors Karl Olafson, J.C. Burns, Betty Dyck, Lillian Vilborg MacPherson,
Paul Newsome, Sheldon Oberman, Peter Lacey, Joan Grenon, Jean Tullett Read,
Sheila Reid, and Kathy Wilkinson.
