It's been said that if you truly want to see the country and some of the best scenery you'll ever see, you need to travel by train at least once in your life.

While I'm still waiting for that opportunity, there are the Rocky Mountaineer rides that are extremely tempting and just waiting to be explored.

The Rocky Mountaineer Train has four stunning rail routes, only one of which runs in the United States while the other three are based in Vancouver B.C.


I've always been fascinated by how the rail routes are created and exactly how much work goes into creating them and building them from scratch.

Check out the stunning scenery that you won't really get driving a car plus when you're driving you can't even really enjoy the scenery because you have to pay attention to the road.

What a ride:
