Rocky Mountain Express 2D
Rocky Mountain Express propels audiences on a steam train journey through the breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Rockies and relates the epic adventure of building the nation’s first transcontinental railway.
The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in 1885 ranks among the greatest engineering feats in history. The project drew on the labor and expertise of thousands from around the world, including a young American railway superintendent named William Cornelius Van Horne. Spanning thousands of miles and some of the world’s greatest natural barriers, this grand transcontinental project, and its wandering ribbon of steel, drew together far flung communities isolated in the wilderness, shaped a new nation and changed the face of the North American continent forever.
