The worrying report estimated that magnetic North will soon be positioned in Russia's Northern territory by the year 2035. We do not know why Russia is stealing magnetic from the Canadian Arctic," a spokesman for the Security Intelligence Service stated, "but whatever the reason, it could be disastrous for the whole of humanity and have serious consequences on our current environment". Experts speculate that Russia maybe taking the magnetic pole hostage in a power play against the West

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.

Exerpt from Magnetic North "With armstrong turntable, bucket coaling station, and two-stall enginehouse, La Malbaie reeked of small-time, steam-powered style; it was the epitome of old-fashioned railroading, still rich in humanity. It was labor-intensive to a fault, with stations sprouting train-order boards (and, inside, the operators or station agents to set them) and engine terminals where locomotives sometimes were turned by men with strong backs and strong arms and sometimes were fueled using derricks to wrestle hulking buckets to tender-top. If labor-intensive, it was also irresistible."

This book is a feast for the eyes, the text alone is well worth the purchase price. The addition of the authors and others photographs is a "time machine experience" for this reviewer, who grew up in Detroit, Michigan in the 1950's . Canada and the Detroit area was the Mecca for the last real steam bastion in this era and Mr, Zimmermann has risen to the challenge of showing us what it looked like with words and photographs. A nice mix of color and Black & White photos illustrate the tale. But the narrative makes this volume a stand out in my opinion. If you were not able to witness the show in person, this book is a worthy replacement and belongs in any steam fans library.

"Magnetic North" is an outstanding book! It has the excitement and suspense of a good novel. The poignancy is of the whole experience is so palpable. It is one of the finest chronicles of the last days of North American steam I have ever read. It now has a place on my shelf next to "The Mohawk That Refused To Abdicate."

This is a wonderfull book of the steam trains in eastern canada as I saw them in the 1950s. most books on the subject of steam trains show a world view foreign to my experience. Great pictures of this era and a wonderfull historic contribution.
