Canadian National Railways Diesel Locomotives, Volume Two

The CNRHA, in co-operation with the Canada Science and Technology Museum,is pleased to announce the release of this much-anticipated book. Building on coverage of CN's pioneering diesel locomotive developments in Volume One winner of the 2012 Canadian Railroad Historical Association Book Award this new book combines archival research within CN headquarters files and interviews with key participants to present the previously untold story of Canadian National's road switcher fleet. Authors Glenn Courtney, Ken Goslett and Kevin J. Holland provide an engaging narrative covering all road switcher models acquired from the fleet's origins in the early 1950s until CN's privatization in 1995, as well as remanufacturing and rebuilding programs, leased and second-hand locomotives, Newfoundland's unique narrow-gauge roster and more. Previously unpublished details of demonstrator evaluations, purchasing decisions, and the origins and development of CN's Positive Traction Control technology and the iconic Comfort Cab and "Draper Taper" cowl body underscore this book's definitive treatment of the subject. Hardcover, 192 pages. 11" x 8.5" horizontal format.
