Product Description

“Pop this DVD into your DVD player and take a family-friendly, entertaining, and more importantly educational adventure across Canada and 3 times zones. As with all of the Little Mammoth BIG Adventure episodes, a child narrator is your guide. Educational concepts are introduced to children (and parents/ educators) via simple graphics such as a map of Canada and the upcoming train route, a “weight” that “drops-in,” or animated examples of how many car tanks of gasoline it would take to fuel the 2 massive train diesel engines. Besides enjoying the splendid scenery passing by the windows, the occasional freight train and wildlife, at one point in the video you hear a personal story from one of the Engineer’s who is a 3rd generation “train man” and get a glimpse into the history of the railroad with historic footage and photos. As a bonus, there is a brief mention of the “Doppler effect” with a diagram and on screen with audio sample of the effect that will stick with children who are attentive.”

Travel Across a Continent on a BIG Train!

Ride through the snowy Canadian Rockies in a special dome car and see the incredible sights as you travel from Toronto to Vancouver! Visit the control center, the maintenance shop, ride in the cab with the engineer and see how the chef cooks dinner on the rails!
