DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION:
In Famous Name Trains David Laurence Jones describes both the practical interiors of the early colonist cars with their communal sleeping arrangements and wooden bench seats, and the luxury of the higher-end cars that looked and felt like rolling men's clubs with wooden veneers, plush carpets, and upholstered chairs. He tracks the evolution of the passenger train, paying particular attention to the virtues of the elegant dining cars on the name trains, and the gastronomic delights that were served to their patrons.
Although Jones's focus is the CPR's name trains and their cars, he also discusses other CPR enterprises that fed into and contributed to the railway. These included the dining halls and mountain chalets built at railway divisional points across the country, the rustic bungalow camps operated both in Ontario and within the Canadian Rockies, and the CPR's iron steamships that sailed the Great Lakes, connecting with the trains that were integral to travel in Canada.
Although this country's love affair with rail travel did not last forever-as Jones writes, for the railway "the future was freight"-readers of Famous Name Trains will be able to feel what it was like to travel in style with the CPR when Canada was new.
