9780968381540: Steam to the Niagara Frontier: CNR Operations in the Peninsula During the 1950s

Step back to the 1950s and witness exciting CNR mainline steam action in the Niagara Peninsula through the pages of Steam to the Niagara Frontier. Visit the Grimsby Subdivision, heart of the Niagara Fruit Belt, where refrigerator blocks of peaches are hustled from the platforms by express fruit extras; experience the contest with the Escarpment as multiple locomotives fight the steepest grade on the system south of Merritton; travel with the Thorold Switcher servicing paper plants along the Welland Canal; stand amid beautifully manicured grounds at Grimsby, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls stations while passenger trains load express, mail and passengers; ride freight and mixed trains behind Pacifics and Mikados over the Dunnville Subdivision and across the Port Colborne lift bridge; watch heavy steam yard engines switch freight cars at Niagara Falls and Fort Erie; cross the Suspension and International Bridges on transfer runs; see Northerns and Mikados being serviced on shop tracks between manifest freight assignments; and observe locomotives being fueled at massive timber coal docks. Fifth in a series of books by Ian Wilson documenting CNR steam operations during the 1950s, the 192-page Steam to the Niagara Frontier is laden with the dramatic photographs, track maps, locomotive rosters, train profiles, time tables and description of operations which characterize predecessor volumes.
