Rail Canada vol.2            REVIEWS

Model Railroader Magazine, May 1979, page 39

Rail Canada Volume 2 is a dandy collection of painting information on Canadian railroads other than the Canadian National or Canadian Pacific. Author Don Lewis has compiled a fine selection of material to produce excellent paint diagrams for a wide variety of locomotives. The work is divided by railroad or service organization. All the known paint jobs for each type of locomotive used are then shown.

One can find information on the Pacific Great Easter/British Columbia Ry., British Columbia Hydro Ry., White Pass & Yukon Ry., Northern Alberta Ry., Algoma Central Ry., Ontario Northland Ry., GO Transit, Toronto, Hamiltyon & Buffalo Ry., Cartier Ry., Quebec, North Shore & Labrador Ry., Wabush Lake Ry., Arnaud Ry., Burlington Northern RR.(in British Columbia), Amtrak (in Canada) and the Consolided Bathurst and Canadian Forest Products industrials.

In addition, updated data on the Canadian National VIA rail equipment appears, along with bicentennial paint diagrams for CN's subsidiary lines in the United States: Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific, Grand Trunk Western, and Central Vermont. All of this information covers 126 pages. An additional 16 pages of locomotive rosters and an index complete the book.

The book is done in a vertical 8.5" x 11" format with a soft cover. Each paint job is shown with a diagram outline (scaled about 75 percent of HO size) of the locomotive side elevation plus both ends. A variety of notes and critical dimensions are included to make layout easy. The various colors are shaded with different line patterns and a good selection of color photographs is included. Sixteen pages are printed in full color. All of the printing work is excellent.

Overall, this is an excellent follow up to the author's first book covering the CN locomotives. It is well thought out with the modeler in mind, and it includes just about everything one might need to paint models properly. Anyone modeling Canadian equipment will find this to be a valuable resource item.
