Best Prices now in effect

My three books on VIA Rail provide great value for the price - full of text, data and photos that you won't find elsewhere. Canada Post, in its infinite corporate wisdom, has decided to substantially raise postal rates, including oversize lettermail rates that I am able to use, to keep shipping costs as low as possible. Having absorbed previous increases in printing costs as well as previous postal increases, I have not changed prices since my books were published.

Now I am doing so, but as minimally as possible. To keep it simple, the price of each book, still including shipping, has increased by $5. A sawbuck. A fiver. That's it, that's all. Postal rates to the US remain the same as always - a small additional charge to be added to the Canadian cost, to cover postage.

You'll find new pricing in each of the order form and flyer documents linked to in the sidebar. In any event, the prices are now as follows:
Trackside with VIA: The First 35 Years $30
Tw VIA: Cross-Canada Compendium $35
Tw VIA: Cross-Canada Consist Companion $15

Even VIA Rail has raised their ticket prices and changed their pricing plans, since the day's of CN's Red, White and Blue fares, and they still provide a valuable, though much pruned service on their network. 
I remain committed to keeping the prices of my book as affordable as I can. After all, it's been one of my main goals all along.
