Description

Who says you can't write a book? In his 70's, Terry’s passion for trains lead him down an unfamiliar path as he took on the task of writing a sentimental account of his early years in Banff, Alberta. His story begins in the beautiful Canadian Rockies at the Banff Train Station — his first real home.

From inspiration to publication, Terry brings us through the process of what it was like to write his first book, “When Trains Ruled the Rockies: My Life at the Banff Railway Station”.
