THE CPR – THE ‘WORLD’S GREATEST TRAVEL SYSTEM’

Incorporated in 1881, the Canadian Pacific Railway’s original purpose was the construction of a transcontinental railway. By the 1930s the CPR was much more than a railroad. Win Boyd (TPC #920) is our guide as we travel around the world with CP. From Liverpool on the “Empress of Britain” to St John, NB, by train to Vancouver and then across the Pacific on the “Empress of Japan”. All aboard!
