About the book:

Issued to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Sydney & Louisburg Railway, this wonderfully evocative book brings back the days when the S&L played a pivotal role in the life and economy of the Island. The railway hauled coal from the pithead to ships, carried people from town to town, and served the transportation needs of the entire community. This book provides a detailed history of the S&L, including its construction, growth, and operation over the years followed by the decline after World War II of the coal industry to which the railway was so closely tied. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. Of interest not only to railway fans but also to anyone who loves Cape Breton. With extensive bibliography. 110 pages.
