Part of the award-winning BIG Adventure Series from Little Mammoth Media! Travel across the continent on The BIG Train! Ride through the snowy Canadian Rockies in a special dome car! See incredible sights as we travel from Toronto to Vancouver! Learn how a train trip is planned. Visit the control center, the maintenance shop and much more! Discover the history of the trans-Canadian Railway. Ride in the cab with the engineer and see how the chef cooks dinner on the rails! "Pop this DVD into your DVD player and take a family-friendly, entertaining, and more importantly educational adventure across Canada and 3 times zones. As with all of the Little Mammoth BIG Adventure episodes, a child narrator is your guide. Educational concepts are introduced to children (and parents/ educators) via simple graphics such as a map of Canada and the upcoming train route, a "weight" that "drops-in," or animated examples of how many car tanks of gasoline it would take to fuel the 2 massive train diesel engines. Besides enjoying the splendid scenery passing by the windows, the occasional freight train and wildlife, at one point in the video you hear a personal story from one of the Engineer's who is a 3rd generation "train man" and get a glimpse into the history of the railroad with historic footage and photos. As a bonus, there is a brief mention of the "Doppler effect" with a diagram and on screen with audio sample of the effect that will stick with children who are attentive." - TA
