Author Charles Bohi has spent countless summers combing Canada's west for information. He has photographed several thousand stations and structures. His exhaustive studies have enabled him to write an entire volume devoted to Canadian National's depots. And Charles' concise, interesting and informative text is accompanied by over 130 photos. But these are not simply poor snapshots of boarded-up stations you sometimes see in other books on old railroad stations. Almost all of the photoschosen are superb action shots, showing the stations in use, occupied, ear ning revenue, or with today's train passing through." - from dust jacket.
