The Railfan Chronicles, Trainwatching in Ontario, 1975 to 2005
The Railfan Chronicles is a series of books about different railroads during the period from 1975 to 2000. This was a period of great change in the railroad industry, with mergers of large railroads and creation of regional and short line railroads to operate unwanted lines of the Class One railroads. Trainwatching in Ontario chronicles the author's many trips trainwatching throughout the Province between 1975 and 2005. Trips to Windsor, Toronto, London, Sarnia, Chatham, Sudbury, Capreol, among others, as well as to famous railroad junctions at Bayview and Komoka, showcase Canadian National, Canadian Pacific, VIA Rail Canada and other Canadian railways in all their glory during this period of transition in colour and black and white photographs taken by the author.
