Railroading in the Canadian Rockies has never been so professionaly captured on film. Whether blasting through the drifting snowbanks during winter at its harshest, or sailing through picturesque meadows in full summer, the only way to fully appreciate the extremes of the Continental Divide is to experience it from onboard a train. Set against the astounding vistas of Lake Louise and Banff National Park, nature in all its awesome wonder and strength is dramatically portrayed. Ride across the Divide on VIA’s famous Canadian, or hop veteran FP9 diesel locomotives as they put their shoulders against the grindstones of North Canadian weather and topography. There are even film clips from the 1950s that provide a nostalgic look back at what was then considered state-of-the-art.
