At CP's Calgary Station, met this CP passenger train, the "Canadian".

I wonder why the steam was pouring from the car in the hi-summer season. Was it so cool in the Rockies?

CP's station in Calgary was much more modern. It was occupying the ground floor of a boxy, office-like building in the downtown.
