It is a technical ly feasible proposition and economically sound. In a few years' time, Pariswill be only a four-hour train journey from London and cars will eb whiske d through to the Continent in well under an hour. It is, nevertheless, a vast project. In this new, comprehensive survey Deryck Abel abses himself on the extensive researches carried out from 1958 to 1960 by the Channel Tunnel Study Group. After an historical survey, covering the last 150 years, he explains the initiatives recently taken bny British, French and American interested parties. his technical survey includes teh conclusions of the geophysicists and an appraisal of engineering devices and techniques -- immersed tube, bridge, railway tunnel, road tunnel, rail-cum-road tunnel. He dealsalso with potential tunnel traffic and its conditioning factors, and final ly with the financial and legal problems involved. At a time when the Common Market and growing unity dominate European development, this book is an essential guide to a project that may well prove to be a turning point in Britain's relationship with the Continent." - from the dustjacket.

AMYOT, Chantal, Bianca GENDREAU, and John WILLIS. Special Delivery : Canada's Postal History. Edited by Francine Brousseau. Principal photography by Claire Dufour. [Preface by The Honourable André Ouellet]. (Fredericton, New Brunswick and Hull) : Goose Lane Editions, Canadian Museum of Civilization - Canadian Postal Museum, (2000). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xi,(1),13-150,(2). Illustrated in colour. Folio, black paper-covered boards with gilt lettering to front and spine.

"Sending and receiving mail lies at the heart of our lives and the history of our vast country. Dymbolized by the letter carrier, the letter, or the stamp, the post is part of our daily life. The postal system has taken part in Canada's great historical moments: in the fur trade, in the construction of the railway, on the abttlefield. It has evolved with the rhythm of explorers' journeys and the transformation of the land into the Canada we know today. The post office stands, literally and figuratively, right in the centre of our villages and cities, and it remains at the centre of our modern communications network.

To celebrate Canada's postal heritage, 'Special Delivery' showcases the jewels in the collection of the Canadian Postal Museum and tells the stories of our rarest and most beautiful stamps. Archival photos bring to life horse-drawn wagons and sleighs, early aircraft and snowmobiles, and remote post offices. Modern photos show the jets and trucks that move today's huge volume of mail.

Throughout the history of Canada's postal system, some things never change. It's the people - the clerks, the sorters, the drivers, the letter carriers, the postmasters - who make the mail go through. The responsibility of delvering the mail and the excitement of receiving it are the same today as they were in the days of sail." - from the dustjacket.

14 ANGUS, Fred Loyalist City Streetcars : The Story of Street Railway Transit in Saint John, New Brunswick. First Edition in dustjacket
Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum, Toronto / Saint John:, 1979, ISBN:0919130291 
ANGUS, Fred. Loyalist City Streetcars : The Story of Street Railway Transitin Saint John, New Brunswick. Toronto / Saint John: "Published jointly by Railfare Enterprises Limited and The New Brunswick Museum", 1979. First Edition. Pp i-ii,1-82. Double column. Illustrated. Small folio, reddish-brown imitation leather. "For nearly 80 years the city was served by streetcars, originally horse-drawn and later powered by electricity. The history of thevarious companies which ran the streetcars in Saint John is one of conside rable interest, full of ambitious schemes, disappointments, frustrations, reorganizations, modernizations, plus innumerable anecdotes and legends. Except for the period 1876 to 1887, the streetcars ran from 1869 to 1948. Overthe years the number of cars run was surprisingly large in relation to the size of the system. By the time the last trams gave way to buses most Nort h American systems of comparable size had long since been abandoned, and the single-truck hand-braked cars were relics of a bygone era. In Loyalist City Streetcars, author Fred Angus captures the flavour of Canada's port city, and tells the story of New Brunswick's first street railway. You'll read about the bottleneck created by the original bridge over the famous Reversing Falls, with its inability to carry the weight of electric cars causing adivision of the street railway into two physically-separate sections.. See the streetcars meet steamboats at Indiantown, for the journey into town to bypass the falls. Hear how the horse gave way to electricity in J 893. Say "Thanks", along with all Saint John riders and residentss, tor the cars' hand-brakes which — with operator skill and much good luck - worked well enough in 54 years ot electric operation, to avoid any serious runaway streetcars down the city's treacherous hills. Read about the wild winter snows grinding the system to a halt. See cars built by Ahearn & Soper, Montreal Street Railway, the Ottawa Car Company, Tillsonburg Electric Car Company, and many more. Study the damage inflicted to turned-over cars during the labour strife of 1914, and how the army was called out to quell the uprising. [....]" - from the dj Contents: Foreword, Chapters : 1.

ARMSTRONG, Christopher and H.V. NELLES. Monopoly's Moment : The Organization and Regulation of Canadian Utilities, 1830-1930 . Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1988). Pp. (6),vii-xiii,(1),[1]-393,(1). 8vo, printed browncard covers. "In this award-winning book, Armstrong and Nelles explore the struggle to build and regulate Canada's utilities and the response to the problem of monopoly inherent in these technologies. Using primary sources, many of them unique to this study, the authors have chosen examples from all regions of the country. They illustrate how regionally distinctive operations of utilities, which relied heavily on public ownership, created a diverse yet highly integrated utilities sector." - from the rear cover. Includes mentions of Nova Scotia Power, as well as much dealing with Halifax (including some references to the street railway and the strikes of 1913 and 1918), plus New Brunswick Electric Power Commission and Telephone Company points.
