Silk Trains of North America

PictureA long-time APRA member and author of many books on railway history, the late Alan Vanterpool, was in the process of finishing his latest work, “Silk Trains of North America”, a fascinating history of the silk train era. He graciously consented to make a copy of the last draft of the book available to Alberta Railway Museum website visitors.  Here is a link to download this version.
