This is book related because Kailana's challenge has me thinking WWI and WWII type things.  I just found thing on the Pier 21 War Bride site. This is year is the 60th anniversary of the Year of the War Bride.
"VIA Rail's 2006 WAR BRIDE TRAIN Brings War Brides Back to Pier 21 Where Their Lives in Canada Began

VIA Rail will be celebrating Canada's War Brides by bringing a special train from Montreal to Halifax for a unique celebration at Pier 21. Aboard the train you will be able to participate in an oral history interview with one of Pier 21's oral historians and enjoy music from the WWII era.

The train will depart Montreal November 6, 2006 at 6:30 P.M. and arrive in Halifax on November 7th at 4:20 P.M.(off-peak fares apply). Pier 21 will be hosting the War Brides on November 8th for a day of activities. Details to follow."

Such a neat idea.

Sigh. I kinda miss studying this stuff...
