In 1919 the Prince of Wales (later the Duke of Windsor) climbed aboard the steam-powered Algoma Central out of Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario bound for western Canada. The 288-mile round trip still attracts distinguished passengers who ride through some of North America's most spectacular scenery. In the summer the train makes daily stopovers at the Agawa Canyon Wilderness Park.
