Transcontinental Train

A scenic view from the rear dome car of Canadian Pacific transcontinental train. Photo was taken end of December 1957 in the Lake Nipigon, Ontario, Canada area. I was 16 when I took that photo. Sure a long time ago...

And, only half-way across Canada on the trip; just The Canadian Shield, terrain-wise - the five mountain-ranges of the Rockie Mountains are over a day away !

I remember that view, from the Dome Car, over the corrugated stainless-steel roofs of the passenger cars.

Great memory shot.

Regards, from New Brunswick,
