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 a perilous 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. Shutting down is not an option, and it’s in the coldest frost bitten months that the network stands up as a feat of modern engineering. These though crews face the constant threat of deadly avalanches, monster icicles, rockslides and dangerous wildlife, to do whatever it takes to keep these critical life lines running.
Whilst in Canada's frozen north we follow the Ontario Northland Railway, one of the last flag stop railways in Canada who provide a critical lifeline to some of the Canada’s most remote First Nation communities.
