Rocky Mountaineer, Great Canadian Railway Journeys

Michael Portillo’s Great Canadian Railway Journeys series is back! The first series of the popular BBC Two programme will be reshown. In episode 9, which will be aired 22nd February 2020 at 8pm, Portillo boards Rocky Mountaineer, the world’s largest privately-owned daylight luxury tourist train, in Kamloops to discover the engineering feats of the Canadian Pacific Railway which carves through the Rocky Mountains towards Banff. Rocky Mountaineer is the only passenger train to travel along this historic Canadian Pacific track, giving guests on board an exclusive view of the Rockies and its past.

Portillo will journey on the First Passage to the West, Rocky Mountaineer’s most popular route which follows the Canadian Pacific track, famous for connecting British Columbia with Canada more than 130 years ago. In the episode, Portillo leans more about the engineering achievements including the Spiral Tunnels. The track travels from lush rainforests to a semi-arid desert, alongside powerful rivers and into the Rocky Mountains to the national park towns of Lake Louise and Banff.

An on board Rocky Mountaineer expert host also imparts the story of Billy Miner and how he became an infamous railway thief who perpetrated the first train robbery in Canadian history near Mission, followed by a second in Kamloops.

Rocky Mountaineer will appear in Great Canadian Railway Journeys again airing at 8pm on 22nd February 2020 on BBC Two.
