Canadian Pacific Historical Association

The Canadian Pacific Historical Association (CPHA) is a volunteer run non-profit historical association dedicated to sharing information about the Canadian Pacific Railway and its subsidiaries, past and present. Our high quality magazine, CP TRACKS, contains detailed articles, photographs, scale drawings, and historical information on the CPR as well as the D&H, GRR, LE&N, Kettle Valley, Soo Line, and others. Whether you are a modeller and/or historian whose interests are either steam era, early diesels or the latest ECO and Tier 4s, there is something for everyone. Also, if you would be willing to actively get involved we are always looking for people. Maybe you could write an article, furnish photographs or set up a display table at your local train meet. That is what the CPHA is all about... the sharing of information.

CP TRACKS Magazine

CP TRACKS is published twice a year with one issue in March and another in September. Our latest issue of CP TRACKS, issue 14-1, was mailed September 2018. Work is already under way for issue 14-2 (March) and we're looking for articles for issue 14-3 and beyond.

Documents Library

In addition to CP TRACKS magazine a dedicated team of CPHA members has been working hard to build a large online library of CPR documents. The library currently includes over 5300 documents, drawings and plans with many more to come. Visit the Documents Library.

Volunteers Wanted

We are looking to fill a number of Regional Section Foremen positions for Alberta, Saskatchewan, Quebec, and New England. You will work with the executive to disseminate information to local members and promote the CPHA at various public venues, such as train shows and conventions, as you deem appropriate.
