Canada: Trains through Black Canyon - British Columbia

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description

My last full day in Canada before heading back to Australia via the USA, I visited what happened to become my favorite railfan location in Canada. Black Canyon in British Columbia, just south of Ashcroft.

Standing on the cliff, you can see trains for a significant distance coming from Ashcroft.

This brings back great memories of working for CN as a signal maintainer and gang foreman. I walked every mile of that track and climbed every pole from Kamloops to Vancouver in the mid 80's. Black Canyon has to be one of the hottest places in Canada. We recorded temperatures over 45C beside the tracks on a July day.Beautiful country other than the extreme heat and the rattlesnakes (we were provided snake bite kits). Thank you for the video!

A very beautiful Video.
Impressive Landscape.

I have never seen a train with so many freight cars.

Impossible in my country :)
The rail traffic would collapse :))

I subscribed you.

Awesome video. Thank you for making and sharing. Certainly gives a whole other perspective to Canadian rail transport. I find myself wondering how long of a hike to reach your viewpoint!

Many thanks for this video! From the viewpoint of a UK enthusiast the train lengths are late Grandfather worked for CP in Southampton Docks over 50 years ago and the trains in his photos he got from CP in Canada for me were still very long indeed! Mid train and rear end helpers...are these locos remotely controlled by radio or via cable connections through the entire train? Finally, how long did it take to climb to your viewpoint? Thanks for a superb video. Best wishes, Rob.

What will always impress me is that each and every RR car must be strong enough to pull all that are behind! That is some technology, IMHO! Thanks for a great video!!!
