GwaJtUwjhcifec New Peak in Canadian Train Development—Canadian Pacific Semi-Streamlined Trains
g^l uxurious travel in air-conditioned coaches drawn
m by semi-streamlined engines—at no extra cost to the
&/L passenger—is the keynote of the service being
"^^ inaugurated by the Canadian Pacific Railway on
the day runs between Toronto and Detroit; Montreal
and Quebec; and Calgary and Edmonton. So great is
the public interest in the new train that recently when
exhibited at Windsor Station, Montreal, it attracted over
60,000 spectators in four days!
Maximum travel service; smooth performance; roominess and air-conditioned comfort; low-cost refreshments; Canadian Pacific standard—all these are features
of the new Canadian Pacific trains.
THE TRAIN—Maximum Travel Service. Headed by
one of the new 4-4-4 type high-speed, semi-streamlined
Jubilee passenger locomotives of the 3000 series, each
train will consist of:
One mail and express car,
One baggage and buffet car,
Two first-class passenger coaches.
The compact and modern buffet counter offers a wide variety
of refreshments
The passenger coaches are of lightweight design and
are semi-streamlined. The roof is a round top, the height
from the rail to roof being 12 feet, 11 inches, with the
width of the car at the windows slightly greater than the
present standard cars. The side of the car has a bow
which extends from roof edge to window line and from
the bottom of the window line to the bottom of the side
sills. The coaches have four-wheel trucks in place of
six wheels, while the cars are 73 feet, 10V2 inches over
coupler knuckles.
THE JUBILEE LOCOMOTIVE—Smooth Performance.
This new engine can attain a speed of 110 miles per
hour, and stops and accelerates with great ease.
Diameter of driving wheels, 80 inches. Weight on
drivers, 120,000 lbs. Total weight of engine, 263,000
lbs. Total weight of tender, 198,000 lbs. Boiler pressure
300 lbs. per square inch. Coal capacity, twelve tons.
Water capacity, 7,000 Imperial gallons. The boiler
pressure of these locomotives is thus increased 2 5 lbs.
over the highest pressures commonly used on Canadian
Pacific locomotives in recent years.
PASSENGER COACHES—Roominess and air-conditioned comfort. These modern coaches have a 5-seat
women's lounge and a 10-seat men's lounge with
seating capacity in the body of the car for 36 people.
The seats are of the individual, self-adjustable, reclining,
rotating type and are spaced much farther apart, thus
providing a maximum of comfort for the passengers.
Occupants can set the seats to any angle or direction
they prefer. The ceiling is painted in light colors to
improve the illumination, which is of an entirely new
type, having individually controlled lights with
prismatic lenses located on the bottom of the basket
racks.
These modern coaches have been fitted with an ice-
activated, air-conditioning system so that the cars will
be at all times well ventilated with clean, fresh air of
pleasant temperature. With this system of ventilation
the windows can be kept closed, yet the air in the coaches
will be constantly renewed and the coaches will be dirt-
and dust-proof.
BUFFET CAR—how-cost refreshments. This coach has
a 7-foot, 6-inch buffet counter which opens in the coach
end of the car and is designed for the serving of light
refreshments at moderate rates. Seats in this car are
of the bucket type. The same modern system of air-

The air-conditioned buffet car and courteous service makes
delicious meals seem even better
conditioning available in the passenger coaches is a
feature of this buffet car. There is also a 2 5-foot baggage
compartment.
MAIL AND EXPRESS CAR—Past Service. The mail
and express car has a 30-foot mail compartment, and
commodious express facilities. It is modern in every
respect.
CANADIAN PACIFIC STANDARD—None better.
On these new-type trains you will enjoy, too, efficient and
courteous Canadian Pacific service. They will give
smooth, comfortable performance, and constitute yet
another advance in the ever-upward progression of
Canadian Pacific facilities. Yet will cost no more
—there being no extra fares, or parlor or sleeping car
charges. You will be flattered by the over-all beauty of
these trains, and their interior attractions, which are a
credit alike to the Canadian Pacific and to the Dominion
of Canada.
