Credit Valley Railway 30th Anniversary Project
Diesels To The Bruce
A Quarter Century of Canadian Pacific Lines Through Orangeville
by Ralph Beaumont
Canadian Pacific's beloved lines radiating from Orangeville, were southern Ontario's quintessential rural branch line railways. Author Ralph Beaumont spent many years recording action on these lines, which included the main line from Streetsville through Orangeville to Owen Sound, along with its rural branches to Elora, Teeswater and Walkerton. Diesels to the Bruce is Ralph's personal tribute to this now sadly departed railway - produced in partnership with Credit Valley Railway Company of Mississauga as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations. The book is available exclusively through Credit Valley Railway, and only a limited run of 500 copies will be printed.
Hardbound, Large 8.5x11 format
136 pages full colour, with more than 230 photos and illustrations

100 Ghosts: An Exposition of Rural Grain Elevators - Volume 1
One Hundred Ghosts is a photographic exposition of rural grain elevators with a focus on wood elevators of both frame and crib construction. The photographs are organized around specific railroad branch lines. It is a coffee-table book with contemporary photographs. But, given how the material is organized, the book elicits the key trends between elevator construction and CO-OPs and the associated railroad lines. As such, it is a great reference for modelers.
