On October 13 North American Railcar Corporation will be displaying current and future production items!

Barbara Lange, editor of Through the Window of a Train: A Railway Anthology will also be at the train show! 

Through the Window of a Train: A Railway Anthology collects stories from thirty Canadian authors (including Sheldon Oberman). These stories retell the significance of the railway - or a single journey taken - in the lives of Canadians. 

Dotted with junction and siding names, engine numbers, and routes, this book is a must for rail enthusiasts.

Barbara grew up in England. Her father worked for the London North Eastern Railway. Barbara travelled daily from her home in Brentwood by diesel-electric train and Tube to her office in London. 

She immigrated to Canada in 1978. Since then she has travelled on VIA's The Canadian between Vancouver and Toronto, on The Ocean to Halifax, and to Churchill on The Hudson Bay Line. Barbara lives in Winnipeg with her husband, Larry (Smiley) Lange, a retired CNR carman from Transcona.
