Review of Trolleys of Eastern Canada by Sunday River on DVD


Double PCC Car West of Bloor to the Jane Loop. Peter Witt cars and PCCs East on Queen Street to Neville Loop then west to Long Branch and the double loops under the CNR main line. Glimpses of Canada's first subway. All as it was in 1958.


Ten miles around the twin peaks of Montreal (Mt. Royal and Westmount) on a multi-tiered open-air observation car - like a gallery track inspection car but with gold filigree embellishment - from track side, on board and a trolley 'chase' car.


Downtown under the gray spitting skies of February with line cars and snow sweepers. Then a brilliant sequence on the Highland line in three feet of snow. Across the empty landscape to Britannia Park with the Gatineau Hills in the distance.

Running time 50 minutes
