"Canadian Pacific Train, "Trans-Canada Limited": The Canadian Pacific has in summer three transcontinental trains a day crossing Canada, of which one, the "Trans-Canada Limited," is the fastest long distance train on this continent. It covers the distance form Montreal to Vancouver, 2,886 miles, in 89¼ hours, and from Toronto to Vancouver, 2,706 miles, in 85½ hours. The train is seen here leaving Windsor Street Station, Montreal. The other two transcontinental trains (running all year) are the "Imperial" and "Vancouver Express," the former from Montreal and the latter from Toronto, both to Vancouver. Through trains are also operated in summer from Chicago to Vancouver, of which the "Mountaineer" is a famous limited train."
