Canadian Pacific Historical Association

Canadian Pacific Historical Association


We are a non-profit historical association dedicated to sharing information about the Canadian Pacific Railway and its subsidiaries, past and present. Our high quality magazine, CP TRACKS, contains photographs, scale drawings, historical information, and articles on the CPR, as well as the Soo Line, DAR, E&N and CP Electric Lines. Whether you are a modeller and/or historian whose interests are either steam, transition, early diesel or the latest 4400HP GE monsters, there is something for everyone in every information-packed issue. Also, if you would be willing to actively get involved we are always looking for people. Maybe you could write an article, furnish photographs or set up a display table at your local train meet. That is what the CPHA is all about... the sharing of information.

CP TRACKS is now published twice a year with one issue in March and another in September. Our latest issue of CP TRACKS, issue 13-4, was mailed March 2018. Work is already under way for issue 14-1 (September) and we're looking for articles for issue 14-2 and beyond.
