Posted:
Rocky Mountain Railroad follows the resilient crews who battle ferocious weather and treacherous terrain to keep Canada’s critical freight and passenger trains rolling during the winter months. It’s an exclusive journey through the icy mountain wilderness on the country’s most extreme railway.
 
The historic Canadian Pacific Railroad is the sprawling steel ribbon that links the country from coast to coast. With a fleet of 500 locomotives and cars and an arsenal of innovative snow fighting machines, its operations are critical to the country’s economy.
Shutting down is not an option, and it’s in the coldest frostbitten months that the network stands up as a feat of modern engineering. Facing the constant threat of deadly avalanches, monster icicles, rockslides and dangerous wildlife, the hardy crews of the Rocky Mountain Railroad must do whatever it takes to keep this critical lifeline running smoothly.
