A Breathtaking Trancontinental Journey Aboard the newly restored "Canadian" * Toronto * Winnipeg * Saskatoon * Edmonton * Jasper * Banff * Lake Louise * The Canadian Rockies * Kamloops * Vancouver * Victoria

Join Doug Jones, one of America's foremost travelog producers, on the most spectacular long haul rail journey of the world!

In 1955, the Canadian Pacific inaugurated the "Canadian", a new train designed to offer the ultimate in rail luxury. It was then and remains today, one of the longest rail journeys of the world. After years of constant use, V.I.A. Rail took on the daunting task of completely restoring all the original 1855 stainless steel equipment, including the bullet lounge Park Cars, the observation dome cars, the dining cars and bedroom cars. The newly restored equipment was then put back into service on the beautiful northern route of the old Super Continental.

The result of this giant project is captured in this film.

You'll see footage of the original laying of the tracks at the turn of the century, early steam trains crossing the prairies, film of the original 1955 Journey of the "Canadian" and you'll visit the yards in Montreal today and watch the historic rolling stock being restored.

You'll also tour Toronto, visit the Royal York Hotel, watch the train being prepared for departure and join in the excitement as this great transcontinental train leaves westward on a truly spectacular journey.

You'll meet the bedroom stewards, the conductor, have "dinner in the diner", sleep in a rolling bedroom, ride in a locomotive and see all of the behind-the-scenes operations of this great train.

You'll also visit Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Jasper, Lake Louise, Banff, Kamloops, Vancouver and Victoria. You'll see the most breathtaking scenery on earth from the comfort of one of the greatest trains in the world.

The brand new, feature length film will take you back to a bygone day when "the going was good."  So come aboard, sit back and relax and experience a beautiful and intriguing journey on board the new "Canadian" with Doug Jones as your guide.
