'After reading your book, it feels as if I have been there!'

If there is a single comment which summarizes the reaction to reading one of Ian Wilson's books, that is it.

Written in a moment-by-moment narrative style, like a gripping novel, the hardcover Canadian Branchline Steam series take the reader back to Friday, June 25, 1954. Hundreds of photographs, maps and time tables printed on high-gloss archival paper.

Softcover issues, such as Steam at Washago, King's Highways & Steam Trains (volume 1) and Steam Scenes of Stratford put the reader in the action on specific days in the 1950s.

Ian's books are the definitive story of locomotives, trains, operations, history and occupations on the Canadian National Railways (CNR) in Ontario during the steam-to-diesel transition era of the 1950s.

There are nine volumes in the steam series. Steam Scenes of Allandale is a picture-and-caption supplement to Steam at Allandale. Of the nine titles, only four remain in print, and copies of the others are eagerly sought (we wish we had more to sell!). If there is sufficient demand, some of the five out-of-print titles may be re-issued as second editions.

If you would like to order any of these books by cheque/check or money order, please download and fill in the information on our current flyer, then send that with your payment.
