The Canadian Pacific Railroad, a huge achievement, runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. Although its numerous branch lines cover almost all the landmass of Canada, its backbone is still the Montreal-Vancouver line, over 4,600 kilometres long. The network is complemented by a series of shipping routes, most importantly on the Great Lakes and the West Coast.
