About this title

Synopsis:

A tribute to one of North America's oldest still running railway companies.

This landmark tribute to the Canadian Pacific Railway features the work of many of North America's top rail photographers. Remarkable photography and essays cover the entire CPR system, from the east coast to the west coast including Nova Scotia's Dominion Atlantic lines and Vancouver Island's Esquimalt & Nanaimo. Some of the best steam and diesel photographs ever published appear here along with 1950s-vintage photos of steeple-cab electrics and passenger trains on the Electric Lines subsidiaries: the Grand River Railway and the Lake Erie & Northern.

Canadian Pacific Railway captures the pleasure of lingering in wood-frame stations where time was marked to the beat of a Seth Thomas clock, the stainless-steel glamor of the Canadian, the gritty drama of SD40s grinding up mountain grades, and the loneliness of the prairie.

About the Author:

Greg McDonnell has spent a lifetime observing and documenting all aspects of railroading. His writing and photography appear in North America's leading rail publications. His first book, The History of Canadian Railroads, was published in 1985. His six books with Boston Mills Press include Signatures in Steel, Passing Trains and Wheat Kings. He is also the series editor for the Boston Mills' Masters of Railroad Photography series.
