The Mount Royal Tunnel: Canada's First Subway

$24.95

Softcover book.

Subtitled: "An Illustrated Story of the Construction and Operation of CN's Railway Tunnel under Montreal's Mount Royal"

This book describes the building of CNoRís huge complex that became todayís Central Station, and the site for downtown Montrealís massive complex: Place Ville Marie, Queen Elizabeth Hotel, Place Bonaventure, CN headquarters, and other large office buildings. The clean-running electric locomotives hauled trainloads of commuters to the CNoRís 'Model City' development (Town of Mount Royal) and other suburbs to Montrealís northwest, with change-overs made to steam locomotives (later diesels) to take inter-city trains to Ottawa, Toronto, and the western provinces.
