Let the Canada 150 Tour Begin


Ioco Spur Port Moody British Columbia - Canadian Pacific's Canada 150 Train played its first gig today in Port Moody.
 
The train arrived from Coquitlam about 16:00 by backing onto the Ioco Spur stopping near the Port Moody Recreation Complex next to a fenced off area for the dignitaries.
 
Crowd control was provided by two CP constables at the Murray Street grade crossing.
 
CP's mini-train was on hand for the kiddies, big and small, along with live music, a complex bouncy castle plus a large bouncy tiger.
 
Here's a few photos of the train's arrival with the Theatre car leading the way:
