Description

Ron Brown is Canada’s leading literary authority on the history of Canada’s railroads, particularly those now-lost branches from the golden age of steam that once ran like veins and arteries throughout the country. This special four-book bundle collects several of his titles, including: the poignant The Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore, an examination of the railroad’s impact on communities – when it leaves town as well; Rails Across Ontario and Rails Across the Prairies, which trace the development of rail across the country and its economic and social impact; and In Search of the Grand Trunk, which takes a close look at Ontario’s railway heritage in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Brown’s books are entertaining but also meticulously researched. This bundle is a treasure trove for the railway enthusiast.

Includes:

  • In Search of the Grand Trunk
  • Rails Across Ontario
  • Rails Across the Prairies
  • The Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore
