Come with us as we visit portions of the famous Fraser and Thompson River Canyons in British Columbia. The most natural route through this region to access Vancouver and complete the transcontinental routes was through these natural, and dangerous canyons. In the Thompson canyon Canadian National is on the north side, and Canadian Pacific is on the south side of the river. Further south in the Fraser River Canyon, the Canadian National crosses over the river and over the CP which also crosses as they change sides of the river. You’ll see a wide variety of train traffic on both railroads as we cover the area from Boston Bar to east of Spences Bridge. There is even one scene where we see two trains at the same time on opposite sides of the river. There are unit coal trains with mid-train remote control helpers, and even see some leased power on the CP. The shear cliffs and raging rivers will always make this a formidable foe for both Canadian Railroads.
