Company Information: Canadian Pacific Railway was founded in 1881 to link Canada’s populated centres with the vast potential of its relatively unpopulated West.

It’s world-famous transcontinental passenger service ‘The Canadian’ was handed over with all other passenger services to government agency VIA Rail in 1978 where it was ‘merged’ with Canadian National’s competing service.
