A collection of photographs illustrating the Newfoundland Railway's operations in the St. John's area in September 1976. The station, workshops and railway yards and the equipment stored there are shown. This is followed by photographs of, and information about, all the types of diesels that operated on the Newfoundland Railway.
The operation of the mixed train that ran three days a week from St. John's to Argentia and Carbonear is explained and illustrated. Finally a collection of photographs taken on a trip on this train are included. Photos were taken both from the rear coach and from the cab of the second locomotive.
The book is 80 pages long and provides an excellent snapshot of railway operations on the Avalon Peninsula in September 1976.
