I know this community has pretty much been dead for awhile.
There are so many images I should've posted here that only made it
onto my blog.
But today, I come with different purpose altogether; to recommend to
y'all a book that's a must-own for any fan of ViaRail.
I found mine at a 2nd hand bookstore in new condition.
It's called Canadian Rail Travel Guide by Daryl T. Adair and it
documents "mile-by-mile (of track) descriptions of points of interest,
locations of communities along the way and overviews of destination
It does this for every major train in Canada including not just Via's but
the Rocky Mountaineer, the Royal Canadian Pacific, etc...
From the back cover:
-More than 130 colour maps and photographs
-"Photo Alerts" tell the traveller about scenic photography opportunities.
-Vivid descriptions of the scenery, historic sights, wildlife.
Anyone here who rides the trains regularly would definately enjoy it!
