Canadian Pacific in the Rockies (Key Publishing)

1 In Stock

A collection of colour photographs illustrating the Canadian Pacific Railway as it runs through some of North America’s most stunning scenery.

The Canadian Pacific Railway was built to unite all the Canadian Provinces with a transcontinental line running from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Many obstacles were encountered during construction including the Rocky Mountains, a formidable range of mountains in Western Alberta and Eastern British Columbia.

Canadian Pacific in the Rockies concentrates on the section of line from Exshaw, where it first encounters the Rockies, to Golden and the other Canadian Pacific line, south of Alberta, which traverses Crowsnest Pass. It features impressive long freight services, hauled by multiple locomotives, which in many cases provide a stark contrast to the equally impressive backdrop.

Detailed captions provide further information about every illustration. Contains over 150 colour photographs. 96 pages.
