Are you loco for locomotives?

Ride along as Rocky Mountain Express retraces the original route of the Canadian Pacific Railway – a transcontinental track carved out of the wilderness more than a century ago.

In 1885, work crews from east and west met up deep in the mountains to pound the last spike – joining the final pieces of steel and changing the destiny of a continent. This grand 19th Century project called on the passions, expertise and labor of tens of thousands from around the world. But it wasn’t going to be easy. If countless landforms, rock and soil types, impossibly steep grades and extreme weather didn’t pose enough of a challenge, the tracks would also run through four hundred miles of snow-peaked mountains. The builders faced it all: tunneling through granite and unstable shale, flash floods, massive snow falls, avalanches and mud and rock slides. Hundreds lost their lives in the mission to connect the United States and Canada.

Join us for this ride of a lifetime to re-live the remarkable age of steam. Locomotive 2816, also known as the Empress, roars out of Vancouver headed for the Rockies. On your trip, discover the vintage locomotive as we explore the Fraser Canyon, Rogers Pass and Kicking Horse, obstacles that still challenge railroaders today. With pistons still pumping, the landscape begins to change as you chug past the towns that grew and prospered thanks to this railway.
