Review of Canadas Showcase - Ride the Canadian Pacific Route DVD

Frozen Lake Superior... Cab views of Kicking Horse Pass and Spiral Tunnels.. A Winter Wonderland!!!

Journey west from Toronto over New Year's 1990, just two weeks before the "Canadian" was re-routed off the Canadian Pacific. The final minutes show the last run to Vancouver. The first portion highlights journeys from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, showing the changes over the decades. Our companion video "Silver & Blue" takes you on a 1994 trip over the CN route through Jasper.
