Canadian Pacific introduced the transcontinental Canadian in 1955. But, according to page 18 of this timetable, the railroad had a train of the same name in 1943. That train, however, only went between Toronto and Detroit.
Hundreds of other trains are also included in this timetable, along with Great Lakes and coastal British Columbia steamships and Canadian Pacific hotels. While yesterday’s 1943 menu said that Chateau Lake Louise would be closed but Banff Springs Hotel would be open in 1943, this timetable says they were both closed.
