Product Description

Review

"Terrific stories about the lure and impact or railroading in Canada [told with] punchy, robust writing." ―Mike Harcourt, former premier of British Columbia and former railroader

(2015-01-09)

"Capturing the environment of railroading and putting it on paper embeds the reader in the dedication of the writers. This book will become a classic." ―Herb Dixon, president, Alberta Railway Museum

(2015-01-09)

"Whistle Posts West is a must-read for serious train buffs and armchair rail travellers alike. It has tragedy, intrigue, humour, poetry, and railroad jargon. It is especially rich with Western Canadian history . . . so sit back and enjoy the ride!" ―Garry Marchant, author of The Peace Correspondent

(2015-01-09)

"The authors bring their train tales alive through striking incidents, surprising anecdotes, and wonderful writing . . . Read Whistle Posts West and jump aboard Canada's love affair with trains." ―Don Waite, author of British Columbia and Yukon Gold Hunters

(2015-01-09)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the material quite good and the text well written---but--- the quality of the pictures and the paper quality very poor.I have observed many of the pictures before and I found the transfer of the original picture quality to this book unacceptable and perhaps the publisher is to blame for using the almost "pulp" quality of paper.That facet of the book relegated what could have been a very commendable effort to mediocrity.
