Coast to Coast

I listed some of the destinations to which my book has been delivered in my July 5 post. Now I'm able to add the final Canadian province...Prince Edward Island. VIA didn't run trains in PEI, so above is a photo I took of CN 1751 at the ferry dock in Borden in 1982.

Fellow blogger Chris Mears picked up his copy this past weekend. As many customers tell me, Chris mentioned that the book looks great, and that he needs more time to digest it further. I completely understand why. There's so much information in the book that even if a customer wanted to read it cover-to-cover, sleep and meal breaks would get in the way.

So now, Trackside with VIA: The First 35 Years has truly gone coast-to-coast, sort of like the classic 1965 National Film Board short comedy The Railrodder.



  1. Looks like the book is selling well Eric. All the best.

  2. Thanks Chris, I'm very pleased with the book and also with sales to date. I'll be even more pleased every time my book is used as a resource, at informal get-togethers, trackside, or at operating sessions (or bull sessions) at great layouts such as the LVN!

    Thanks for your comments and for stopping by.

  3. You can add the Gulf Coast when mine finds its way down to Texas!

  4. Just received and shipping Friday, Tyler. You'll be the farthest south North American customer of which I'm aware - I'm adding the Lone Star State to the list in my previous post now.

    Now, I wonder if there are any VIA fans stationed at CFS Alert? It would be cool to have a copy delivered via Operation Boxtop.

    Thanks very much for your order, Tyler.
