The records in this series include photographs, historical documents, books, maps, pamphlets, and artefacts, and include a number of very rare items such as Alfred Waddington's "Overland Route through British North America" (1868).

This series has been arranged into eight subseries: the Canadian Pacific Railway, C.P.R. Steamships, Travel and Tourism with the C.P.R., the British Columbia Coast Steamship Service, Artwork and images of the C.P.R., C.P.R. artefacts, Working for the C.P.R., and the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway Company.

Records in this subseries relate both to those travelling on the C.P.R. as well as those who worked on it, and include notable items such as and a blueprint book of Canadian Pacific Railway Standard Plans, 1908, and engineer-in-chief Sandford Fleming's "Report on Surveys and Preliminary Operations on the Canadian Pacific Railway up to January 1877."
