CNR - Synoptic History to 1960

INTRODUCTION
This synoptic (summary) history of the CNR was compiled by the Canadian National Railways (Accounting Department) by the late A. B. Hopper and T. Kearney, B. Sc., B. Eng., as of December 31, 1960, and published in 1962.
It is valuable to railway history researchers by providing basic information about all of the constituent and predecessor companies of the CNR, including related industries such as telegraph, ferry, shipping, hotel, real estate and financial companies. It is particularly helpful in providing dates of incorporation and openings, directors, mergers, mileages, abandonments and so forth.
It was provided to me some years ago by railway researcher Art Clowes. Please note that there are formatting irregularities on some pages.
