Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must-read for history or railway buffs - with caveats A great history of all of New Brunswick's railroads, the businessmen behind them, and the influence of politics, from the dawn of steam age to modern times. If you're a railway geek or a history nerd (me, on both counts) you will really appreciate this book. The material is very well researched. That said, there were a few small, yet annoying issues with this book. For starters, there are a significant number of spelling mistakes scattered throughout, which simply detracts from what is otherwise excellent material. Also, I found the continuity of the book a bit strange. The book is broken down into chapters for different railways, however I found that sometimes the same information was repeated multiple times in different places of the book. Also the narrative flow was a bit odd - for every inserted photograph, the author seemed to begin a new thought without necessarily completing what was before the photo. My last concern (and this is a fairly major one, at least for me) is the lack of a map showing any of these railroads. There are a number of excellent photos, but not one map anywhere in the book. Material such as this begs for either a series of maps reflecting railroads over time, or at least one master map displaying all of New Brunswick's historic railways. Otherwise, this is excellent source material for anyone looking for a consolidated history of all of New Brunswick's railroads
