Visit Canada from 1939 to 1973 from New Brunswick to Vancouver Island. We bring lots of steam and the early diesels in both freight and passenger service. Many maps and special diagrams were specially prepared to highlight the features in this video. The film sources are numerous from many of the most famous rail fans that were active from the 1940s through the 1970s. See steam, electric and early diesel action from coast to coast! Both in-cab and trackside action bring you great scenery and a nostalgic look of stations and tracks that are now gone.
Lots of history and the best locations such as Banff, Lake Louise, Kicking Horse Pass Spiral Tunnels and Crowsnest Pass in the days of steam and diesel. Also, the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, Grand Trunk, Central Vermont, Soo Line logging lines and much more. See Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, Deux Montagnes Electrics, QRL&P Railway, Quebec Central, Esquimalt & Nanaimo, Logging Lines, Pacific Great Eastern and CP Ships – all in one program!
