From the St. Francis to the Chaudière. This book chronicles the history of the Quebec Central Railway from its beginnings in the 1860s to modern day.
Over 200 photographs, maps, diagrams, reports, and timetables cover all aspects of the operation of the railway. There's information on the conversion, in several locations, of the right-of-way from "Rails to Trails," thus permitting hikers, cyclists, and snowmobilers to once again travel the Quebec Central, albeit with a different form of locomotion. Available in English only.
