You’re thinking of the 1951 tour. The wedding was 1947, King George died in
1952 and the coronation was in 1953.

OK - I’ll bite. I know of a few collections of film footage showing royal
trains (and connecting ships) arriving or departing in and out of Vancouver,
mostly connected to the 1939 visit and then the tour after King George died
(forget if it was after the wedding or coronation of the queen.). Are there
another colour film images of the railway equipment in use in the rest of
Canada? What I particularly am interested in is the stuff that isn’t “royal
train” that is depicted in the vicinity.

With the passing of Prince Philip, I thought I'd start a threat about royal
visits that included rail travel. I'm guessing that among us there just might
be some memories
