Book Description

April 1 1996
A truly outstanding work of research, this atlas is intended as a reference for those interested in Canada's present and historic transportation networks. The maps in this atlas depict the location and dates of construction and abandonment of all known railways and canals in Canada up to January 1, 1993. A description of construction techniques is included, as well as numerous illustrations that provide information not readily depicted in the text or by the maps. This atlas took 20 years to produce and will be a vital resource tool for many decades to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Canadian railway and canal reference July 31 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
If you are interested in Canadian transportation history, then this atlas is a must for you! The author details, in writing, pictures and maps every significant railway and canal in Canada, including in-service dates, the route(s) and abandonments.
A great way to see how our country was shaped by rail and canal transportation from 1830's to 1950's. It is a must-have for every rail-fan, student of Canadian history, school and library in Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transit in Canada April 6 2007
By B. Hann
Format:Hardcover
This is a magnificant documentation of transit engineering history in Canada. The large format is worthy of the expanse of the navigation systems of this majestic land. The author takes us on a journey from the beginings of commercial transit via trunk roads and cannals of the colonial era to the massive undertaking of railroad construction and operation throughout modern day Canada. The book is full of rare photos and detailed maps of railways and waterways active and abandoned. A great way to cover your coffee table with just one volume of railway and waterway transit.
