Review of Canadas Rocky Mountaineer DVD

Remarkable new vistas greeted rail passengers in 1885 when the "National Dream" of the link between British Columbia and eastern Canada was hammered into reality with a final spike. The Coast, Selkirk and Rocky Mountains yet beckon visitors.

Since 1990, Great Canadian Railtour Company Ltd. has operated all-daylight trains between Vancouver and Banff, Calgary and Jasper, with an overnight stay in Kamloops. Between May and October of each year travelers from around the globe are discovering this enchanted region.

Come aboard in May 1996 for the full journey between Vancouver, Kamloops, Banff, and then on to Calgary. Signature Class coach and GoldLeaf dome services are both sampled. Warm sunshine in the Fraser Canyon contrasts with a snow shower at the Spiral Tunnels. Trackside views from the fall of 1995 are also presented along with steam-era Canadian Pacific operation. Take the trip of a lifetime again and again!
