Only fitting, with Canada's history related to the railway, that on Canada Day that Canadian Pacific Railway steam locomotive #2816, The Empress travelled from Kenora, Ontario to Winnipeg and Portage La Prairie, Manitoba on its return to Calgary, Alberta. Tickets were sold on an excursion from Winnipeg to Portage La Prairie by the committee to preserve the CPR Station in Portage and by all reports the event was a huge success.

The fall foliage season is a great time to travel in Canada by train and there is still some space remaining on Rail Travel Tours Superior Colours of Ontario tour. In fact, for those booked on the tour, we can look after the details for you to travel to Toronto by train and spend the night before and after the tour at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
