Review of Canadian Rails Vintage Scrapbook by Charles Smiley

 4 of 5 (3)
Visit Canada from 1939 to 1973 from New Brunswick to Vancouver Island. We bring lots of steam and the early diesels in both freight and passenger service. Many maps and special diagrams were specially prepared to highlight the features in this video. The film sources are numerous from many of the most famous rail fans that were active from the 1940s through the 1970s. See steam, electric and early diesel action from coast to coast!

In-cab and trackside action brings you great scenery and a nostalgic look of stations and even tracks that disappeared years ago.
