See Canada by Train-Vintage Advertising

Canada day is July 1st and to celebrate the beautiful country I so proudly live in, I wanted to take us on a vintage train ride through my country. Shall we grab our vintage train case and go?

I hope you enjoyed our very quick trip from Coast to Coast today.

Have you ever taken the train to see parts of Canada? I know I want to and would love to hear your stories if you have.

Happy Canada Day!

  1. Awesome post!!! One of my bucket list dreams is to see Canada from coast to coast (or at least very nearly so) by train. I had relatives in town from Kamloops for the long weekend and two of them have done it (in the case of my uncle, three times) and were talking about just what an incredibly, leisurely experience and throwback to the classic era of rail travel it is, so the desire to do so myself is stronger than ever. One day!!! 🙂

    Big hugs & happy start of July wishes, dear gal!
