I bought this book for my dad on his 90th birthday. He spend 43 years with the CNR and worked at a number of stations featured in the book. Well researched and written.

A nice overview of Canadian railroading in the praire provinces Nov. 6 2013
By Marc Grenier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A nice history of Canadian railroads in the praire provinces. One problem with the Kindle version is that in some chapters the alignment of the text. The bold headings in the subsections overlap the first few words of the first paragraph making them unreadable.
