Ramblings of a frustrated armchair Railway Modeller

Everyone is entitled to my opinion, so I've decided to enter the blog-o-sphere in order to share them with you.
My focus is the rationale and development of my model railway, but I am likely to wander off topic from time to time.

Narrow Gauge Through the Bush

I love this book and you have an opportunity to buy it for half of what I paid!
Deadline: January 31, 2011

Posted elsewhere by Russ Milland:
Many of you are aware that a local railway history enthusiast, Rod Clarke, published a definitive history of the pioneering Toronto, Grey and Bruce and the Toronto and Nipissing narrow gauge railways which he researched and wrote after several decades of dedicated effort. I created a website to promote and publicize the book which can be found here:


We also did a news item on this book here:


Derek Boles, our historian at the TRHA, wrote a testimonial as follows:

"This is quite simply the most magnificent book ever published on the history of Toronto railways. Rod Clarke is to be commended for his significant contribution to railway scholarship."

Many of us purchased a copy of the book for $65.00 when it was first published, I did and I still consider that price a bargain. However, now that the print run of 1,500 copies has diminished to only several hundred copies being left, the price has been reduced and the current price is $32.50 which is a really good bargain to my mind.

So I have decided to offer the book to anyone who wants to get one before they run out at a cost of $35.00 (with the HST included)..

If you would like a copy of this book, please reply to this message. I will work out how to get your copy to you in due course...

Please note my e-mail below re this excellent book. This book will likely go out of print in the next year or so as there are only a few hundred copies left.

I am accumulating orders for what may be my last purchase of a batch of these. If you are in the southern Ontario area and any of you want a copy I am sure we can arrange a way of getting it to you without paying the $14 postage.  I live in St. Catharines but visit Toronto often. Let me know by January 31st if you or anyone you know wants a copy.

Happy New Year!
