Good overview of a great RR and a Canadian institution Feb. 21 2009
By J. W. Herris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a good overview of a great railroad and a Canadian institution. The CP was more than just a railroad; it had hotels, ships, etc., and these are mentioned during discussion of this company, although the focus is primarily on the railroad. The photography is wonderful and makes the book. Too bad there wasn't more room for more specialized information on the locomotives and cars, but many are shown in the excellent photos. A good overview and first reference on the CP.
Excellent Overview of a Great Railroad June 14 2012
By Mark Carolla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Like most books in this series from this publisher this book is an excellent overview of a major railroad. Like most books in this series I found it a bit lacking in maps for my - there are about three or four of parts of the system that are not very detailed. Otherwise, the graphics of photo reproduction are excellent. A strength of this and other books in this series is that they are not the usual dry academic corporate histories that some university presses put out but describe the dynamics and operations of a railroad in its historical and contemporary context. As this is a book about the Candian Pacific Railwayjust enough is provided about Canadian Pacific's hotel, airline and ocean liner operations to put this gem of Canada's history into proper perspective. Easily worth 5 stars.
