Great Blog Train #4

All Aboard!!!
The Great Blog Train

A monthly blog hop departing from your online train station on the first Wednesday of every month!

Train Facts
The Canadian Railway was an essential part of building the country.  Since Canada is such a rural & vast country with poor road conditions and frozen waterways 5 months out of a year - the Transcontinental Canadian Railway was a necessity!  The first railroad in Canada was built in 1841 (before Canada was a country) and then railroads continued to be built until 1932!! - That's 91 years!!  Unlike the American Railroad Revolution only lasting 50 years - the Canadian Railroad Revolution lasted almost 100 years!

Blog Train Rules, by Angie Ouellette-Tower for

1. Follow all three of the hostesses in at least one of the following ways: GFC, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin, Linky, Networked Blogs, or Facebook. Then leave us a comment telling us how you followed so that we can come back & visit you! The hostesses are:

Angie           Marci            Helen

2. Now link up your family friendly blog to the train...please only use your homepage, NOT a specific post! As you see below, we are quite serious about this rule:

3. And last, but not least, connect to the boxcar in front of you (the blog in the linky just before you). Stop by that person's blog, have a look around and leave a comment letting them know that you stopped in!

Now that you have your ticket you are
ready to board the rest of the train!

OPTIONAL:You may grab our “Great Blog Train” button and post it on your sidebar or link page.
Also, feel free to spread the word – the more the merrier!

    1. Thank you! - I tried to follow you back but received a message that "your blogger profile was never opened" - so I don't know what your blog is. I'd love to follow though - if you wanted to give the name of your blog - Thanks.

  10. Thanks a lot for hosting. Have a wonderful week.


Please feel free to leave comments or questions (no question is ever stupid) - They will show up on the blog once I have read through them.
Thank You.
