Information/Write-up

This album in music industry terminology is a concept album featuring some of the best known and loved Canadian railway songs from the pens of several great Canadian songwriters. It has been created for the 'railway buff', the enthusiast who is emotionally moved by the haunting wail of a steam locomotive whistle.

For nearly thirty years, West Coast songwriter and recording artist Dave Baker has been writing and singing songs about his homeland, and many of the characters who played a role in it's history.

His Kettle Valley Line song, recounts a childhood experience that occurred in 1952, when a double headed steam passenger train stopped to take on water late one summer evening, and turned a wide eyed seven year old boy into a lifetime rail buff.

An album for 'rail buffs', history enthusiasts, and great listening.
