This 1937 decoration of 2703 was to commemorate CPR's 50-year anniversary in Vancouver. 374 also participated.

On Royal Trains, don't forget the 1901 transcontinental train [Duke & Duchess of Cornwall & York]

The first instance of travel by train in Canada by a royal would have to have been in 1860 during the visit by the Prince of Wales on the occasion of the opening of the Victoria Bridge.
