Review of CNs Yellowhead Pass on DVD by Greg Scholl

 5 of 5 (1)
Canadian National's transcontinental mainline crosses through some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. West of Jasper, Alberta in Jasper National Park is Yellowhead Pass which is the CN crossing of the Rockies. There is a great variety of freight traffic on this busy section which splits west of Mt. Robson (Canada's highest peak) to go southwest toward Vancouver, and due west to Prince George. When this was shot there were still cabooses on the trains to Prince George. The VIA passenger trains are also seen as we see the Sceena from Prince Rupert, and the Canadian on its journey across Canada in the Jasper Area. In addition to all this freight and passenger action we'll see a CN test train, and get a peek inside. This video is a wonderful blend of great scenery and mixture of train variety. It is the CN version of Kicking Horse Pass, without the Spiral Tunnels.
