Letters From Cuba

Simple Living with Vintage cars, Old Trains and Friendly People.

A life long passion for riding and photographing old cars and trains led the author and two of his sons to make several journeys through the island of Cuba, North America's least known neighbour, where tremendous changes are taking place. They met and spent time with ordinary Cubans - farmers, sugar mill workers, cowboys and steam railroaders - people whose thoughts and opinions have seldom been heard and whose photos are not often seen.

Narrow Guage Railway Scenes: Canadian, U.S.A. Mexico & Guatemala

Wander with me from the scenes throughout this book, showing narrow gauge station life in rural Guatemala as mixed train meet mainline passenger, to the mountains and valleys of Colorado, through the forests and down the coast of California, then to Pennsylvania and North Carolina coal country, stopping by a couple of Maine two-footers on our way up to Canada’s Newfoundland, over to an Ontario stone Quarry, then west to Alberta and British Columbia for lines that are only memories, plus a famous Shay and some tankers that still run.
There exists an unusually large body of published work about narrow gauge railroading in general, which indicates that many people enjoy such books and articles. There is a lot of support and encouragement among enthusiasts of narrow gauge trans to write down what they know and to print up their pictures. Taking this as a cue, I started about 30 years ago to assemble a little troves of interesting stories and photos on the narrow gauge myself. That’s what helped bring about this volume.

OFF ON A WILD CABOOSE CHASE...

The world of rails holds a nostalgic fascination for millions of Americans who remember a train whistling around the bend with a steam engine leading and a caboose bringing up the rear. Adolf Hungry Wolf, expert on American Indian culture and well-known author of train lore, has had a lifelong love affair with the rails. Here he relates many tales from his encyclopedic knowledge of the railroad and, in particular the caboose. The most beloved of all rail-cars because they were home to the crew, cabooses were surrounded by myth, legend, and sometimes truth far stranger than fiction.
Adolf Hungry Wolf purchased an old caboose to use as his office and transported it many miles over rail and road to his home in British Columbia. That arduous, if scenic, journey is described, and he gives recommendation for how similar caboose can obtained and used by their fans. He also includes suggestions for some scenic and historic train trips in North America that he and his son Okan have discovered over the years.
This fascinating collection of true adventures, folklore, and farewell tribute to the old train caboose is illustrated by stunning photographs, many of them from the author’s own historic collection.
