Description
Soldiers pose on a CPR train at Port Arthur, Ontario in 1885. They are en route to Saskatchewan to aid in the suppression of Riel's North West Rebellion. Troops that used the rail-lines at this time faced arduous travel through the many gaps in the line before they could reach Port Arthur. Soldiers traveled on foot, by sleigh and by rail in uncovered gravel cars to reach their destination.
