• The CP Canada 150 Train

    ON AUG. 13 – This family-friendly occasion has something for Canadians of all ages and there are a number of activities to explore during the three hour event.

    The iconic F-unit diesel locomotive CP 1401 (1958) will lead the train, powering more than 10 beautifully restored Royal Canadian Pacific heritage cars. These cars are historical treasures and have hosted some of Canada’s – and the world’s – most influential minds including Canadian author Pierre Berton; Princess Elizabeth and Prince Phillip (pre-coronation); and Sir Winston Churchill.

    A highlight at each stop is the opportunity to take part in decorating a special railcar named the Spirit of Tomorrow. Children are invited to write their hopes for the Canada of tomorrow on a commemorative card. Each will be affixed upon the railcar and as the CP Canada 150 Train makes its journey across the country, the Spirit of Tomorrow will come alive.

    You’ll be treated to a truly Canadian performances of Dallas Arcand, champion Aboriginal hoop dancer, Juno award-winning country music singer Dean Brody, country singer Kelly Prescott and our house band, the Rail Road Ramblers.

    In addition to world-class entertainment, the CP Canada 150 Train has a number of family-friendly activities at each stop.
