Souvenir copy of this menu card and envelope, ready for
mailing may be had on application to dining car steward. The First Transcontinental Train
^"P^HE first train that ever ran from an Atlantic to a Pacific
I      port through Canadian territory was that which left the
old Dalhousie Square station in Montreal (behind the present Place Viger Station) on the 28th of June, 1886, and rolled
into Port Moody, then the Pacific terminus, six days later.
Amid the cheers of thousands of citizens and the booming
of the guns of the Montreal Field Battery, this pioneer train,
consisting of two baggage cars, a mail car, two first-class day
coaches, two colonist cars, two first-class sleepers and a dining
car, pulled out on its transcontinental run.
The land through which it traversed on its westward course
was largely virgin prairie, or wild and solitary mountain passes.
Today its successors speed through vast landscapes of prosperous
farms and thriving orchards, busy villages, progressive towns
and mighty cities. The change has been largely brought about
by the Canadian Pacific Railway, which has added extensive
colonization and development activities to its main function as a
transportation agency.
The traveller on these trains of forty years ago had to
stick to his train or take the chance of very primitive accommodations if he left it at wayside stations. Today he may drop
off at many of the most interesting points on the route, assured
that Canadian Pacific service and courtesy await him in his hotel
as completely as on his train.
