A tribute to one of North America's oldest still running railway companies.

This landmark tribute to the Canadian Pacific Railway features the work of many of North America's top rail photographers. Remarkable photography and essays cover the entire CPR system, from the east coast to the west coast including Nova Scotia's Dominion Atlantic lines and Vancouver Island's Esquimalt & Nanaimo. Some of the best steam and diesel photographs ever published appear here along with 1950s-vintage photos of steeple-cab electrics and passenger trains on the Electric Lines subsidiaries: the Grand River Railway and the Lake Erie & Northern.

Canadian Pacific Railway captures the pleasure of lingering in wood-frame stations where time was marked to the beat of a Seth Thomas clock, the stainless-steel glamor of the Canadian, the gritty drama of SD40s grinding up mountain grades, and the loneliness of the prairie.
