Introduction to Canada?

Post by Mrgoodspeed » Wed Oct 31, 2018 6:39 am

Hello from the UK and apologies in advance if this question offends forum etiquette.

I am a UK based railfan and reasonably knowledgable about European railways. Next year my wife and I will be holidaying in Canada. I don’t know anything about Canadian rail – where can I find out about Canadian railways? Is there a good website or other resource for rail enthusiasts, that will get me up to speed on Canadian rail?

We will be spending time in Vancouver, Victoria island, riding the Rocky Mountaineer, and then last few days in Banff.

I run a website/app with a database of UK and European rolling stock – is there anything similar for Canada?

Thanks in advance, and again apologies if question not appropriate.
