Winter on Kicking Horse Pass - Canadian Pacific DVD5 of 5 (1)
Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
February in the Canadian Rockies, with chest-deep snow, truly stunning scenery and action red SD40-2's. What more could you ask for? We covered CP's transcontinental mainline between Golden BC and Banff AB through the Kicking Horse Valley, the Spiral Tunnels, over Kicking Horse Pass and down to Banff. Power is mostly SD40-2's with some SD40-2F's (red barns) and some leased power. The Rockies are absolutely magnificent and are right in your face, and Morant's Curve has to be one of the most spectacular locations on the continent. This tape recently received the Canadian Rockies Railroad Museum Foundation award for "Outstanding Achievement in Railroad Video"

This is awesome winter railroading. The CPR through the heart of the fabulous Rocky Mountains in a time that railroading is such a challenge. Better yet.... in this video, the SD40-2's are nearing their end and we get to see history before the next generation of heavy diesels takes over. The scenery is the best in North America, and Highball took the challenge of getting it on tape in the winter. Excellent work. Excellent video.
