When Any Time Was Train Time

When Any Time Was Train Time

Book - 1992
Rate this:

There was a time when residents of Ontario communities listened eagerly for the locomotive's whistle, when travellers and train watchers stood on boarding platforms of vital railway stations and thrilled to the sight of steam, when passenger trains and mixed freights warmed the rails at all hours, when any time was train time.

The grand old days of the steam locomotive once seemed as permanent as anything could be. The bricklayers and stonemasons who built many of the stations in this book believed their work would last forever. Sadly, few of the original stations remain and the sound of the steam whistle is now a cherished memory.

Writer-photographer Elizabeth Willmot has preserved an important part of Canada's heritage in this wonderful collection of nostalgic photographs and colourful stories.
