[UPBEAT MUSIC] HOST: Canada’s
Rockies, an adventure hot spot for more than 9
million tourists every year. Today I’m joining
more than 500 of them. Only we’re not braving
the wilds in hiking boots, we’re gliding into the
mountains aboard the Rolls-Royce of trains. The Rocky Mountaineer
Company has run rail tours through
Western Canada since 1990. At 59 feet long, 15.4 feet
high, and 10.3 feet wide, this 16-cylinder General
Motors diesel locomotive generates 3,000 horsepower. It can reach a top speed
of 65 miles per hour.
