A historical CP train travelling across Canada will roll into Saskatoon on Tuesday evening.
The train will make its stop at the William A. Reid Park, with performances by country music artist Dean Brody and hoop dancer Dallas Arcand, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.
A 1958 locomotive will lead 10 restored cars from 1916-1930.
Key figures like Princess Elizabeth and Sir Winston Churchill rode in the historical cars.
There will also be a railcar designed by children along the Canada 150 journey. Children will write their hopes for the future of Canada on a card that will be posted on the car.
The Canada 150 train is making stops in 13 cities that were prominent in Canada’s rail history.
The train left Port Moody, B.C., on Friday and will end in Ottawa on Aug. 20.
