About the Book
A collection of photographs with captions illustrating the final 25 years of the Halifax & Southwestern Railway between Halifax & Bridgewater, Nova Scotia Canada.
Photographs were taken from the freight train as well as from various lineside locations.
I have been interested in trains since I was a child in the 1940s. Early memories include standing on the footplate of the Flying Scotsman at King's Cross. I have photographed and more recently taken video of trains across North America, Britain and Europe. I have been a volunteer on several tourist railroads and was a senior Trainman on the Salem & Hillsborough Railroad in New Brunswick. I have also been fortunate enough to travel on the footplate of, and help fire, coal, wood and oil-burning steam engines and to drive steam and diesel engines.
