Game Content

    Description:

    The Canadian Train Game is a cross-Canada tour of railroad history. Crossing the entire continent, the transcontinental Canadian railway connected Halifax Nova Scotia on the Atlantic coast to Squamish British Columbia (near Vancouver) on the Pacific. From the days of the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) to the Canadian National Railway (CN) and Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), the history, settlement and economy of Canada are tied to the rails and the goods carried on them. The tour ends at the driving of the last spike in Craigellachie British Columbia and shows William Van Horne's telegram to John A. MacDonald announcing the completion of the railroad.
