Title:  The Train Doesn’t Stop Here Anymore
  • Literacy Events
Description:  Canada has lost much of its railway heritage. Across the country stations have been bulldozed and rails ripped up. Once the heart of communities, stations and tracks have left little more than a gaping hole in Canada's landscapes. Join author Ron Brown and revisit the times when railways were the country's economic lifeline, and the station the social centre. The landscapes which grew around the station are also explored and include such forgotten features as station hotels, restaurants, gardens and the once common railway YMCA. Although most have vanished, the book celebrates the survival of that heritage in stations which have been saved or, like Whitby’s station, have been repurposed.
