Travel with 7idea Productions to beautiful British Columbia, Canada where both Canadian Pacific and Canadian National traverse the rugged Fraser Canyon. Cutting a deep swath through the Cascade Range, this is an important link in the trans-Canada rail network connecting Vancouver with Montreal.
This program follows each line’s course along opposite banks of the Fraser River between Hope and the confluence with the Thompson River at Lytton. These competing railways operate jointly in the canyon. Eastbounds use Canadian Pacific’s Cascade and Thompson Subdivisions, while westbounds travel over Canadian National’s Ashcroft and Yale Subs.
One of the many highlights of the canyon are the Cisco Bridges
where both railways cross the river with the CN flying over the CP. Our summer
and winter visits reveal the grand seasonal contrast of the canyon’s
appearance. Add to that a great variety of trains from hot shot intermodals,
to coal, grain, potash, mixed merchandise, and the Rocky Mountaineer and you
will know why railfans the world over love visiting Canada’s Fraser
Canyon! This program was shot between July 2016 and January 2017.
