The Soo Line’s: Famous Trains to Canada with Terry Gainer

Join local author, Terry Gainer for a book talk and signing for his newest release, The Soo Line’s Famous Trains To Canada, which offers a brief history of a small and unique Class 1 railway and its famous Canada–USA tourist trains. Drawn from Terry Gainer’s personal memories and experiences from his years living and working at the legendary Banff Railway Station, this entertaining memoir and important historical record beckons the reader into the golden age of railway travel in the mountains of western Canada. Complete with a selection of archival photographs, When Trains Ruled the Rockies documents life at the Banff Railway Station and traces the huge role the station played in the local community. The author’s own story of growing up at the station winds a thread through the narrative and brings into clear focus Terry’s lifelong passion for passenger trains, at one time the most dominant means of transportation for Canadians but sadly an experience that is now fading into history.
