Thurso and Nation Valley Railway

Table of Contents

This is a monograph on the last logging railway in eastern Canada, the Thurso and Nation Valley Railway. I came to know this line in its later years and watched it die in 1986. These notes will serve as a reminder of a very interesting railway and a way of life which is now gone for ever.
