Rocky Mountaineer is one of the world’s great train journeys – and I was lucky enough to join a press trip from Vancouver to Banff, riding through some of the most stunning scenery on the line. My article will appear in Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, at a date yet to be decided. In the meantime, here are a few carefully chosen shots of the hundreds I took. I hope they give a little taste of the majestic landscapes you see..
Leaving Vancouver on the first leg to Kamloops
The swirling waters of Hell’s Gate
Starting the next day from Kamloops
A lone fisherman cuts through the water
At the top of the Rockies
Saving the best till last – the final stretch into Banff
