Whirlpool Rapids bridge, Niagara Falls

This one didn't make it into the article on Niagara Falls in Locomotives International (see below). Here the Amtrak 'Maple Leaf' from New York to Toronto crosses the border into Canada over the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge at Niagara Falls on 27 August 1983.


Tim Edmonds - research interests and recent publications

My main research interests are in railway subjects, but I am interested in other aspects of transport history and have recently researched road and maritime history in west Somerset. I am presently researching the way that the term 'train station' has replaced 'railway station' in popular usage.

Some of my recent publications are:


Alford Valley Railway station Alford Valley Railway train departing

Two photos taken on the Alford Valley Railway on 29 June 1989 that didn't make it into the article in Narrow Gauge World (see above). Both show former Severn-Trent Water No 87022 (MR22221/1964) at Alford - on the left the loco is runing round its train and on the right it is departing on a run to Haughton Park.
