When Steam and Steel get in your Blood


Softcover book.

Subtitled: "Recollections of a CPR Locomotive Fireman"

This book is about the work of a real honest to goodness, dedicated railway worker - a roundhouse hostler. Learn how he handled a potpourri of C.P. steam locomotives dating from 1904 to 1948, and ALCO S2 diesels. Details of the work, the workers, the foremen, the facilities, the winter weather, and the working conditions are all explained. "Written by a C.P. engineman, it's a railway book like no other."
