Book Description
Rails Across the Rock is an all colour ‘then & now ‘celebration of the former Newfoundland Railway. The reader is taken on a 547 mile photographic journey from Port aux Basques to St. John’s with virtually all stops in between. Captured from 1952 to 1988, you can see the last days of steam, ride the Caribou, and watch lengthy freights and little mixed trains, as well as the final run.

Those scenes, contributed by some of North America’s top railway photographers, capture not only the colour and uniqueness of our narrow gauge line but also the breathtaking beauty of this wonderful island.

The images of James A. Brown, Bill Linley, Phil Mason, Robert J. Sandusky, Mike Shufelt, Rich Taylor and others are spread all along the trans island journey. When compared to the same scene as it exists today, the changes are remarkable as both nature and progress reclaim the right of way.
