“Iron Highway” (now Expressway) is Canadian Pacific’s premium service intermodel express train. This service is a lifeline for several major Canadian retailers wishing to avoid the often congested Ontario Highway 401. Led by two classic SD40-2’s the Iron Highway roars through the heat of the Ontario countryside on it’s 7.5 hour mission to deliver its T.O.F.C. cargo for its customers on time. This documentary takes you behind the scenes to the CPR traffic control centre where dispatchers juggle the line-up to ensure high-ball conditions.
