Stock Description

Author Charles Bohi has spent countless summers combing Canada's west for information and photographing thousands of stations and structures. The result is this concise, authoritative account accompanied by over 130 photos and sketches. But not simply snapshots of boarded-up stations...almost all the photos are superb action shots, showing the stations in use, occupied, earning revenue, or with today's train passing through.

You'll see how the station agent and his family lived in their own depot-home, complete with flower gardens and neatly trimmed hedges. You'll shiver as you think about the waiting room's pot-bellied stoves that the agents stoked, trying vainly to keep cold prairie winds at bay. And you'll learn just what made each station unique and what to look for when you next go "station hunting."

With archival research and photographs from CNSIG (Canadian National Special Interest Group).
