Like many places, the coming of diesel locomotives had an effect on history and railway identity in Canada. This documentary from the National Film Board of Canada offers a glimpse at the last days of Canadian steam and talks to various people about what the end of the steam era will mean to them. The opinions are interesting, varying from complete indifference, to excitement at new diesel technology, to the end of the joys of travel. It's an interesting half-hour on a subject that hasn't received much attention.
