The Detroit, Michigan-based Grand Trunk Corporation was established more than two decades ago by Canadian National to oversee and maximize the potential of its railroad holdings in the United States. By making use of corporate records, oral histories, and archival material, Hofsommer uncovers the interesting and complex history of the Grand Trunk from its inception in 1971 through 1992. Grand Trunk Corporation is complete in its detail, giving new insight into the turbulent era of deregulation, free trade, repositioning of basic industry, and the realities of the new economic order along with Canadian National's expectations for all three railroads: Grand Trunk Western, Central Vermont, and Duluth, Winnipeg & Pacific.
