Product description

Review

...an absolutely enjoyable read. It is an all-encompassing story of Ontario's rail history, past and present...There are so many interesting facts that even railway buffs will appreciate the level of detail and the amount of information they didn't know before. (Terrace Bay-Schreiber News)

As promised by its title, Rails Across Ontario: Exploring Ontario's Railway Heritage is a most-interesting collection of bits published by Dundurn, Toronto. (St. Thomas Times-Journal)

A reader’s treasure of both historical and contemporary railway lore. (Chronicle-Journal)

... Ron Brown's exploration of Ontario's railway heritage is a thorough, carefully researched account of the coming of the Railway Age to the mid-nineteenth century colony that would become Ontario in 1867... This is an entertaining and lively book for historians and rail enthusiasts of all types. (OHS Bulletin)

Rails Across Ontario is another in a series of entertaining and informative books prepared by the prolific Ron Brown, whose knowledge of people and places related to an earlier Ontario is unmatched. (Toronto Sun)

…Brown's new Rails Across Ontario continues his project of unearthing this hidden history. Like his previous titles, Rails is designed as a reference book – you may read it cover-to-cover when you first get it, but it's clearly meant to be easy to consult when thinking about, or better yet exploring particular communities. (Niagara Life Magazine)

Ron Brown’s book takes a travel writer’s historical look at all the factors that have made Ontario’s rail network what it is today. There is a wealth of history here, as one can imagine… [Rails Across Ontario] is to be enjoyed for its look at all the different aspects connected to the development of the railways and their infrastructure. (Railway Modeller Magazine)

A great little book that would be well worth to keep in the car… (Branchline)
