About this title


Fascinating history of the Grand Trunk System which linked Canada and the US between Montreal, and Portland, Maine and allowed both cities to flourish as ports. The author describes the financial hurdles that accompanied the construction of the railroad and the economic boost it gave not only to the tow cities but also to the countryside along the way, especially the huge lumber industry, trade with the West Indies, and trans-Atlantic shipment of agricultural goods. Includes detailed locomotive rosters. Illustrated with over 200 photos (most in black and white, a few in color). With maps, timetables, mileage guides, advertisements, and posters. Includes detailed footnotes and bibliography. 176 pages.
