The Canadian
 

The Canadian was introduced by Canadian Pacific in April 1955 as its flagship transcontinental passenger train from Montreal and Toronto to Vancouver. It featured new FP9A locomotives and a consist of new stainless steel passenger cars built by Budd in Philadelphia.

The Canadian lasted with Canadian Pacific until 1978, when it was transferred to VIA Rail Canada. It continued to operate on the original Canadian Pacific routing until 1990, when it was moved to CN tracks. VIA refurbished and upgraded The Canadian to Head End Power and relaunched in 1992 under the “Silver and Blue” branding.
The train was recently upgraded again, adding “Prestige” service cars at the rear. These are Chateau Sleepers and Park Cars converted to gorgeous suites with queen-size beds and private showers. Despite suffering from poor timekeeping by “the freight railway,” The Canadian is still VIA’s flagship train. It still operates with the original Budd cars, and it still delights riders from around the world.

The Canadian N-scale set comprises seven different Budd passenger car styles, and our set includes extra coaches and sleepers to create a longer train. The prototype could include as many as 30 cars, but is regularly between 18 and 22 cars long.
