Western Canada and the Rockies

This booklet describes scenery accessible on Canadian Pacific’s routes west of Winnipeg. It seems to be a mate to an Eastern Canada booklet shown here previously. The Eastern Canada booklet was marked “5110” on the back cover, which I interpreted to mean that it was printed in October, 1951. This Western Canada booklet is marked 5007 in approximately the same spot, so it seems to date from 1950.

In addition to its main line through Calgary and Banff, Canadian Pacific had a second route through the Rockies known as the Crowsnest Pass route. Passenger service on this route continued until 1964. It is shown on the map on pages 2 and 3 of this booklet but is only briefly mentioned on page 13.
