Vancouver Island's Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway: Volume 2 - The companion volume to last yearís The Canadian Pacificís Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway: The CPR Steam Years, 1905Ė1949 , this is the continued story of the ever-fascinating, often troubled E&N Railway. The E&N became the key transportation link along the eastern coast of Vancouver Island and to the west coast at Port Alberni. Freight service was tied to forestry and mining, and the E&N also carried everything from furniture to fruit for a growing population that depended on the trains. Even the circus came to Vancouver Island on the E&N Railway.

Featuring hundreds of spectacular photos and beautiful drawings, the book presents a sweeping portrait of the E&N Railway: from the first diesels to the formation of VIA Rail Canada and its operation of the Dayliner, through CPís sale of the E&N and the eventual formation of the Island Corridor Foundation. With Turnerís trademark exhaustive research, MacLachlanís years of experience, and many insights from people who worked for and travelled on the railway, this is at once an invaluable reference and fascinating history. Hard cover.
