CPR 125th Last Spike Community Tour

The Canadian Pacific Railway is dispatching trains around the country to commemorate the 125th anniversary of the Last Spike ceremony for Canada's first transcontinental railway (press release). The CPR will donate some items from its collection to museums and historical societies across the country.

Details on the Community Rail Tour can be found here and you can get tickets for the Children's Wish CP Train Rides. Kudos to CP for donating their train for this worthy cause.

A tour train is in the Winnipeg area now, on its way to Schreiber, Ontario to join the town's 125th anniversary celebration. The train had CP 1401, 1900 and 3084 for power and departed Brandon, MB at 07:00 heading east.
