Review of Fraser Canyon Route DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
The busiest Canadian transcontinental railway link between British Columbia and the eastern provinces follows the ruggedly beautiful banks of the Thompson and Fraser Rivers. There, Canadian Pacific and Canadian National railways operate over 60 trains each day, hauling unit coal, intermodal, grain, sulfur, lumber, and mixed freights.

Take a video journey along the Fraser Canyon Route from Kamloops to Yale and enjoy nonstop railroading action along the way. You'll see a variety of modern GMD and GE locomotives heading up train after heavy train. CN and CO tracks parallel each other on opposite banks of the canyon for much of the route, occasionally making dramatic crossings and switching sides. Concrete sheds are needed at several points to protect the tracks from dangerous snowslides and rockfalls. You'll see all the famous locations: Savona, Ashcroft, Spence's Bridge, Cisco Banks, Lytton, North Bend, Boston Bar, Hell's Gate, and Yale. Enjoy the unusual sights of a rail grinder
