Canadian Pacific
By Greg McDonnell   Canadian Pacific

This 240-page landmark tribute to the Canadan Pacific Railway features the work of many of North America’s top rail photographers in 350 color and 50 black and white photos. Remarkable photography and essays cover the entire CPR system, from the East Coast to the West Coast, including Nova Scotia’s Dominion Atlantic lines and Vancouver Island’s Esquimalt & Nanaimo. Some of the best steam and diesel photographs ever published appear in this 12 x 10 1/4” softcover book, along with 1950s vintage photos of steeple-cab electrics and passenger trains on the Electric Lines subsidiaries: the Grand River Railway and the Lake Erie and Northern. Canadian Pacific Railway captures the pleasure of lingering in wood-frame stations where time was marked to the beat of a Seth Thomas clock, the stainless-steel glamor of the Canadian, the gritty drama of the SD40s grinding up mountain grades and the loneliness of the prairie.
