The lonely sound of the train whistle reminded people along the track of the murdered cook of the Dungarvan lumber camp. Men of the Whooper is a 156 page book detailing Walter's work life with the C.N.R., with several pictures that have never been published before this time. It delves into the history of this railway and others that were developed in central New Brunswick, with special attention to the South Devon rail yards, which were so important to this operation. The book includes many pictures and names of people who worked on the railway, whose main line ran from Devon to Newcastle. Those that have relatives who were railway workers, will be especially interested in the group pictures taken on retirement of the older workers."--Fredericton North Heritage Association."
