Magnetic North is an inspiring chronicle of the brief, bright moment when steam locomotives ran their final miles in Eastern Canada, a time when the certainty of their demise made their presence all the sweeter. From the moment Karl Zimmermann and Roger Cook packed their bags in May of 1958 and boarded a sleeper for Montreal, they were hooked on Canadian steam. They arrived just in time to see and record the end of an era. In a sense, Zimmermann and Cook have been collaborating on this book for 40 years. In carefully wrought essays and in photographs selected from among many hundreds made by the authors and other outstanding railway photographers, this book is a vision of classic steam railroading rendered with first-person immediacy. 1999 Boston Mills Press.
