A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Robert and James Dunsmuir and their Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway shaped the future of Vancouver Island in the late 1800s. A continental railway was Canada's promise to British Columbia for joining Confederation. Initially it was to terminate at Esquimalt, but later Vancouver was chosen. As a compromise the E&N Railway was established on Vancouver Island following much political turmoil. Island coal mining baron Robert Dunsmuir and his partners, with the aid of a subsidy and large land grant, built and operated this railway. After Robert's death in 1889, his son James continued to operate the railway until 1905 when he sold it with the remaining portion of the land grant to Canadian Pacific. These were dramatic and formative years for Vancouver Island and British Columbia. This 168-page book, first published in 1986, is now back in print in a limited edition, produced by the British Columbia Railway Historical Association. Author Don MacLachlan was a veteran E&N engineer who worked for over 40 years on the railway and knew its history well. This book, often requested, has been out of print for over a decade. Included are many rare and unusual photographs. RAILWAY / HISTORY 168 pp 8.5 x 11 150+ photos, with maps, timetables, etc.

About the Author:

Don MacLachlan spent his working life on the E&N Railway, starting out as a roundhouse wiper and retiring as its senior locomotive engineer. He ran the railway's Dayliner for Canadian Pacific and VIA for many years and was widely respected and admired. Don came from a railway family with both his father A.L. Monk MacLachlan and brother Al MacLachlan also being E&N engineers. His lifelong fascination with the railway encouraged him to collect early photos and documents, and to write The Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway: The Dunsmuir Years in 1986. He was made an honorary citizen of the City of Victoria in 1983, and passed away in 2011.
