PACIFIC COAST RAILWAY "Kenneth Westcott and Curtiss Johnson 296 pages hardcover

This book tells the story of the 3-foot- gauge Pacific Coast Railway. For some 66 years this line ran from the deep water harbor at Port Harford (later Port San Luis) on the Central California coast, north through San Luis Obispo, and then south to the sleepy little town of Los Olivos. The 76-mile-long railway brought people and business to the area, and hauled many products to the wharf. From Port Harford they steamed to market on ships belonging to the PC'S parent - the Pacific Coast Company. For model railroaders, the Pacific Coast Railway is a dream line. Steamships docked at its wharf near an ornate Victorian hotel. An electrified branch connected beet fields to a sugar factory, with an interurban car providing passenger service be- tween Santa Maria and Guadalupe. Other branches led to gravel pits and oil fields. The mainline continued south through rolling hills studded with oak trees, terminat- ing in the tiny yard at Los Olivos. Modelers will find plans and photos of many of the PC'S structures, including al- most all of those in the San Luis Obispo yard. They will also find plans and photos of most of the line's cars and locomotives, including homemade electrics, a gasoline- powered locomotive, and a rail truck. There are diagrams of each turnout and line-side structure, and a milepost list with every bridge, fence, and siding. This book should interest all who love railroads, and all friends of the Central California Coast, and be a continuing source of inspiration for model railroaders everywhere." Papa1

PASSENGER & MERCHANT SHIPS OF THE GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC & CANADIAN NORTHERN RY David Guay 248 pages softcover

The untold history of two giants of early-twentieth-century Canadian railroads. A chronicle of the all-too-brief shipping ventures of two of Canada s great railways of the early twentieth century: The Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern Railways. A variety of vessels helped to build and serve these two railways, including sidewheel, sternwheel, and propeller steamers, tugboats and barges. Passenger and merchant ships served B.C., Alaska, Washington State, the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River, and Canadian Maritime and European ports. This was before navigational aids, in a time when groundings, shipwrecks, and sinkings often claimed lives. These same steamship lines played an important role in World War I, when many Canadian vessels were used by the British Admiralty to ferry men and war supplies. Numerous troopships and freighters were torpedoed, and Canadian Northern s entire transatlantic fleet was virtually obliterated. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and drawings, this book pays tribute to these two trailblazing Canadian railway greats. Papa1
