Rocky Mountain Express
Journey on a steam train through the Canadian Rockies for a ride of a lifetime. Re-live the remarkable age of steam, discover locomotive 2816 and retrace the original route the Canadian Pacific Railway carved out of the wilderness more than a century ago. Embark on a picturesque adventure through towering snow-peaked mountains, roaring river gorges and a daunting vertical landscape, showing the beauty of the true golden age of rail transportation. Learn how the steel wheels of this powerful locomotive, carrying thousands of tons of load, barely touched the tracks, making it possible to transport merchandise with a level of efficiency unheard of with other technologies. Discover the near magical efficiency of rail: a technology born in the age of steam and more vital than ever in an era of increasing energy constraints.
