One of the most remarkable engineering projects in Canadian history was the building of the Trans-Canadian Railway. This program presents the story of the building of the CPR including the politics and the immigrant labourers who forged this road of steel across the wilderness of Canada. It includes dramatic footage of the amazing feat of conquering the towering Rockies and the struggles across the vast western plains. It includes interviews with historians who also discuss how the growth of our country is tied directly to the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Available in DVD format only.
