In 1833, a tramway was built in a small town to the east of Toronto. This was only the first of a series of railways built through Whitby over the next 150 years. Stand Clear of the Doors tells the story of these railways, how they affected Whitby and how railway mania turned to decline and finally to growth once more. This history, complete with archival and contemporary photography of Whitby’s railway scene, is essential reading for any local history or railway enthusiast.
