NEW! A PHOTO ESSAY OF STEAM NORTH OF THE 49TH PARALLEL
From Nova Scotia to British Columbia the inimitable locomotives of Canadian National and Canadian Pacific roam main line and branch in summer foliage and in deep snow. . . in the exhilarating photography of a brand-new book whose single aim is to refresh the memory of Royal Hudsons and 6100-series 4-8-4's and many other
Dominion breeds from 2-6-0's to 2-10-4's. Words are minimized and action illustration is maximized in this rich pictorial of steam above the border in its finest and final hour! Another Kalmbach great one.
