"The Canadian

 

A classic in North American railroading, CP Rail's "The Canadian", train No. 2 travels beside the Columbia River eastbound to Montreal. The place is Moberly, British Columbia on the Mountain Subdivision and the pair of F Units, 1416 and 1418, lead the gleaming Budd built stainless steel cars on time at 9:05 A.M. September 2, 1977. The land cruiser is a vacation on wheels with its complement of coaches, sleepers, lounges, domes and diners. Truly, half the fun is getting there.
