• Short Summary

    Travelogue showing the beauty of British Columbia.

  • Description

    British Columbia, Canada.

    Travelogue. We are taken on a train journey through the countryside of British Columbia from Vancouver to the town of Lillooet. Various views from the train are seen. Beautiful snow tipped mountains, old fashioned houses, logging centres, lakes, etc. Driver of the diesel locomotive is seen.

    Interior of the train - passengers are seen. One man looks at a map. A waiter walks through the carriage. Group of Native American Indians are seen beside the train. They sing and perform a traditional dance.

    More scenic views are seen. Mounties wait for the train to arrive. A group of travellers get off the train - they are all dressed as cowboys and cowgirls which is rather odd. We only get a couple of views of Lillooet.

    Three young boys saw and chop wood in a traditional Canadian setting.
