Published by Dundurn Press

Softcover book.

Subtitled: "Exporing the Railway Heritage of Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces"

Follow this book through eastern Canadaís railway heritage. Visit preserved railway stations in various states of use, or take in the architecture of the grand era of station building in Quebec City, Halifax, and St. Johnís. Board scenic railway excursions on the Orford Express or Le Train du Massif de Charlevoix, or travel to VIA Rail's destinations in remote northern Quebec.
Rail trails lead through the Laurentian mountains and Quebecís Eastern Townships. Museums exhibit Newfoundlandís colourful railway heritage, while Canadaís largest railway equipment display lies near Montreal. Magnificent railway hotels include the Fairmont Le Ch‚teau Montebello and the Algonquin Resort, as well as the stunning Chateau-style station hotel at McAdam, New Brunswick. Often forgotten are the railway bridges and trestles, stunning feats of engineering that stretch across wide valleys and churning rivers, the construction of which sometimes led to deadly consequences. Lesser-known attractions, such as roundhouses and employee housing, are profiled to help bring the railway era back to life.
