This book contains over 85 colour photographs that illustrate the locomotives and operations of the Cape Breton & Central Nova Scotia Railway during its first eighteen years.
Since its inception in 1993, the Cape Breton & Central Nova Scotia Railway has operated Alco/MLW C-630Ms and RS-18s, GM GP9s, GP9-4s, GP15s, GP38-2s, GP38-3s, a GP40u, GP50s, SD40-2s, SD45-2s & GP20Ds.
The mainstay of the railway has been the haulage of natural gas and paper products from Port Hawkesbury to the CN main line at Truro.
The railway has also hauled coal (initially domestic & later imported) between Sydney and Point Tupper, and to Trenton and Truro.
VIA ran the "Bras d'Or" - a weekly summer tourist train - for five years.
