FOREWORD [by Fabian Kennedy]
Except for a few dimly remembered rides on the coach to Bowring Park, I never rode on the train at all until I was in my twenties and went to work for the Newfoundland Railway.
Although Newfoundland has historically turned "her face to Britain and her back to the Gulf", as the old anti-confederate song goes, the development of a transportation system on the island had a great deal in common with the rest of North America.
