Book Description

Rails Around The Rock is an all-colour then & now celebration of the branchlines and industrial railways of Newfoundland. In this follow-up to Rails Across the Rock: A Then And Now Celebration Of The Newfoundland Railway and on the 30th anniversary of the closing of the last branchline, the reader is taken on a photographic journey to the beautiful bays and coves and to the interior of the province. Through images captured from 1956 to 1984, readers can ride the mixed trains on the Carbonear, Argentia and Bonavista branchlines, follow extra freights on the Lewisporte and Stephenville lines and watch trains on the Grand Falls Central and Buchans Railway move their commodities.

The images of internationally acclaimed train photographers, James A. Brown, Steve Danko, Bill Linley, Phil Mason, Steve Patterson, Robert J. Sandusky, Rich Taylor and others are spread throughout these pages. When their magnificent photographs are compared to the same scene as it exists today the changes that have occurred are remarkable, illustrating how both nature and progress have reclaimed the right of way.
