A very interesting look at one of the most scenic locations in North America. This is not quite the normal train video that we are used to. It is more a documentary of VIA Rail's "The Canadian" as it passes through the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This vodeo is more of the tourist type of movie. Starting in the flat lands of the prairie region of Alberta, making it's way west we see the city of Edmonton and then the foothills, and on to the steep peaks. There is plenty of wildlife to see, with some standing and crossing the main highway stopping traffic, and traffic even having to drive around some wild sheep. There are a number of CNR freights, and VIA Rail's "The Skeena" makes an appearance as it heads west towards Prince Rupert.
Wether a Railfan, a Tourist, or simply someone planning a travel vocation by rail, you will find this a very interesting video production. Well done Highball. Highly recommended.
