There is no more desolate place on the Canadian Pacific Railway Mainline than the section along the north shore of Lake Superior. Regardless of the season, rock cuts, sheer cliffs, tunnels and sharp curves make this a challenging piece of railroad. You will go beyond trackside, as we ride the trains, see the dispatch center, ride in the roadmaster’s hi-rail truck and even get an aerial look at one of the most remote areas during the harsh winter season. This is nonstop mainline action with a great variety of power including a few ALCOS which are seen as well as the normal SD40-2’s.
Two shows are on one DVD: “North of Superior” and “A Superior Winter”. This is some hard to reach mainline action. So remote that a helicopter is used! The helicopter footage is quite nice in this winter-time program as you glide over the lake looking north broadside at the train running through tunnels, along cliffs and over bridges. This is quite scenic indeed!
