Canadian Geographic issue features Canadian railways - past, present and future
Canadian Geographic is an excellent magazine published six times a year by the Royal Canadian Geographic Society. Their July/August issue, currently on local newsstands, features as the main article: – “Glances from a train – Are Canada’s railways poised for a second golden age?”. It is a fascinating article by Monte Paulsen that chronicles his journey by train from coast to coast with specific sub-articles on key places and their importance to railway history – past, present and future. It is 23 pages long and includes 31 photo images taken by Tobin Grimshaw. It is very well written and illustrated and worth reading. Included in the issue is a separate fold-out map produced by Canadian Geographic of “Canada’s Steel Roads” as they exist today. A version of the article (which may have all of the text in it) with 6 additional photographs is available at Canadian Geographic’s website by clicking here.
