Steel Rails and Iron Men

A Pictorial History of the Kettle Valley Railway

By Barrie Sanford.

Softcover, 8.5x11", 176 pages. 2003.

"In the late nineteenth century, something stood in the way of mining and selling the riches discovered in the interior of British Columbia: mountains - and lots of them.

"While politicians and financiers wrangled over money and public support, engineers sought solutions to the obstacles presented by the terrain. Hundreds of men worked under dangerous conditions to make the Kettle Valley Railway a reality.

"In this updated edition, Barrie Sanford presents a unique pictorial history of the legendary Kettle Valley Railway. From its construction to its turbulent life-span and eventual demise, the magnitude of the engineering needed to build and run the line is celebrated in this classic railway history."
