Take a seat on board an early 20th century steam engine and explore one of the greatest engineering feats in modern history. The story will come to life for viewers of all ages through the aerial footage of the breathtaking Canadian Rockies.

See the sights, feel the sound, and experience the spectacle of a transcontinental journey that shaped a nation.
