CANADIAN RAILWAY BOOKS
ROUTE OF THE CARIBOO
PGE/B C RAIL
A classic volume about railroading in one of North America’s most scenic and rugged regions, along Canada’s west coast. This first fully-illustrated history of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, later B C Rail, includes nearly 400 photographs and illustrations, including 64 pages in full colour, showing trains, stations, people and tracks that make up this fascinating railway. The informative text includes numerous entertaining first-hand accounts and anecdotes from old railroaders, plus maps and equipment rosters.
Said a review in the Canadian railway magazine ON TRACK: “This is both an entertaining and informative book that I personally delighted in reading, not once, but several times. Hungry Wolf’s own writing, as well as the many original stories by PGE vets, paints a vivid picture of the birth and growth of this railway. Speaking of pictures, this volume is simply loaded with them. They are much too beautiful to describe and must be seen to be appreciated.
These are not just my opinions, but are expressed by everyone I know to have read this book.”
