Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Fascinating history of the construction of the White Pass and Yukon narrow gauge railway during the Gold Rush and how the line still operates. The book details the incredible hardships the railroaders had to overcome -- 3.9% grades, below zero temperatures, cliff-hanging routes -- and how its arrival affected the towns along the way, including Skagway and Whitehorse. The book also describes how the railroad became a vital link during World War II as the Alaskan Highway was constructed and its continued role both for transportation of materials to the Yukon and as a tourist railroad. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos that show both the Gold Rush era and the modern trains, as well as the river boats the railroad once operated and the ships that link the railroad to Vancouver, B.C. With roster of steam, gas and diesel locomotives. 96 pages with index and bibliography.
