“Despite its short tenure, the Bermuda Railway has long captured the interest of locals and visitors alike and played a fundamental role in the development of tourism and the building of the naval bases on the Island.

“On Thursday, May 6th at 5:30pm AT, NMB will be hosting a virtual book launch during which Mr. Horn will present his research and hold a question-and-answer session. To register for this event, visit here.

NMB Executive Director Elena Strong said: “The legacy of Bermuda’s Railway survives through the remnants of its track; a trail that passes through some of Bermuda’s best scenery, with views so beautiful it’s nearly impossible not to stop and stare.

“The Bermuda Railway book brings awareness to the history of our beloved Railway Trail and to the history of Bermuda as well. It is a great addition to the growing corpus of NMB Press books on Bermuda’s history and heritage.”

The Bermuda Railway is available for purchase at the The Bermuda Bookstore, The BookMart at Brown & Co, and online. It will also be available for purchase at the NMB Ticket Office once the Museum is able to re-open under current government guidelines.
