Click to preview CN & VIA Passenger trains in Nova Scotia 1972 - 2012 photo book

Over the last 40 years, I have taken many thousands of photographs of passenger trains and stations in Nova Scotia.

Over this time, vast changes have occurred in passenger train operations. I have selected over one hundred and thirty photographs in an attempt to illustrate some of the stations, most of which have now closed and many of which have been demolished, and also something of the terrain through which the trains passed.

The book is divided into two sections - the first illustrates the history and the second illustrates the geography of passenger railways in Nova Scotia.


About the Author

David Othen
rrpics Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada

I have been interested in trains since I was a child in the 1940s. Early memories include standing on the footplate of the Flying Scotsman at King's Cross. I have photographed and more recently taken video of trains across North America, Britain and Europe.

I have been a volunteer on several tourist railroads and was a senior Trainman on the Salem & Hillsborough Railroad in New Brunswick. I have also been fortunate enough to travel on the footplate of, and help fire, coal, wood and oil-burning steam engines and to drive steam and diesel engines.
