Follow this book to Eastern Canada's railway heritage. Visit preserved railway stations in various states of use, or take in the architecture of the grand era of station building in Quebec City, Halifax, and St. John's. Board scenic railway excursions on the Orford Express, or Le Massif de Charlevoix, or VIA Rail's destinations in remote northern Quebec. Rail trails lead through the Laurentian mountains and Quebec's eastern townships. Museums exhibit Newfoundland's colourful railway heritage, while Canada's largest railway equipment display lies near Montreal. Magnificent railway hotels include the Chateau Montebello and St. Andrews by the Sea as well as the stunning chateau-style station hotel at McAdam, New Brunswick. Lesser-known features such as bridges, roundhouses, and employee housing bring the railway era back to life.
