Three exceptional films that explored the challenges of railroading in western Canada and the motive power that tackled them. (2 hours, 40 minutes) Included here are:

Continental Divide, A Winter’s Journey Ride across the Continental Divide on Via Rail’s famous Canadian. These were the last days of Via Rail’s veteran FP9 diesel locomotives. You’ll witness the FP9s in mainline duty during the winter months, when spectacular snowscapes flanked the tracks, and also during the early summer when soft green replaced winter’s whiteness. Enjoy a cab ride in an F40PH-2 and see the mainline from the engineer’s perspective. You’re in for great train action, fantastic scenery, informative narration, and the rumble and roar of locomotives in the Rockies!

SD40-2s in the Canadian Rockies In this action filled video, you’ll learn why GM’s SD40-2 became the ideal workhorse for Canadian Pacific’s route across the Rockies. Climb aboard an SD40-2 for a look under the hood and inside the cab. Then go trackside to catch the bright red engines on Rogers and Kicking Horse Passes. The 2.2% grades of the old Rogers Pass route really put the SD40-2 to the test. You’ll also see cabooses and helper locomotives on many of the trains. The SD40-2 set the pace for railroading in the Rockies and it’s captured here for your viewing pleasure!

Warehouse on Wheels Operations of a Rail Yard: CP Rail’s Alyth Yard Travel to CP Rail’s Class 1 facility at Alyth, Calgary in 1986 for an in-depth look at its daily operations. You’ll go inside the shops to see repairs in progress and watch as the locomotives are refueled and put through giant washing stalls. You’ll see how the hump and two retarder rails help sort cars onto 48 different classification tracks, and how switchers compile trains for new destinations. This video treats you to many rare views of what it takes to move goods by rail!
