|Donald Bain (2007)
Similar to previous Special Award honourees of the Canadian Railway Hall
of Fame, such as Gordon Lightfoot, Donald Bain of Calgary is an accomplished
railway author. He has helped tell the story of the railway industry in
Canada. In the late 1970's, Mr. Bain spearheaded the production of a single
volume known as "Canadian Pacific in the Rockies." This photographic history
lesson morphed into companion publications covering Canadian Pacific,
CN, regional railways, and U.S. railway operations across the country.
The result is an excellent series of publications that not only detail
the history of railway operations in Canada, but also provide a valuable
insight into the important role of the Canadian railway industry in the
ongoing development of the nation. See also www.brmna.com
Donald Bain passed away on July 1, 2009 in Calgary.
