Canadian Pacific's Shuswap Subdivision DVD

Canadian Pacific's Shuswap Subdivision DVD

Canadian Pacific’s Shuswap Subdivision stretches from the picturesque town of Revelstoke, British Columbia, nestled between the Rocky and Monashee mountain ranges on the mighty Columbia River, to Kamloops on the South Thompson River, a distance of 129 miles. This video shows over twenty-four hours of action between Revelstoke and Notch Hill – a distance of seventy-nine miles in May of 2018. This includes the spectacular passage through Eagle Pass just west of Revelstoke and the lakeside running beyond the summit, and the long climb for heavy westbound unit trains up Notch Hill on the new, low grade line which includes a spectacular horseshoe curve. CP’s Shuswap sub is part of CP’s transcontinental main line to Vancouver, B.C. and sees many stack, manifest, sulfur, potash and grain trains, along with 21,000 ton coal trains from southern British Columbia that join the main at Golden on the Columbia River, ninety-five miles east of Revelstoke. Most of these trains utilize distributed power with locomotives spread out at up to three points in the train. Two disk set. Length = 2 hours, 41 minutes. DVD can be watched with or without narration.
