From Full Throttle:
The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTP) was a historical Canadian transcontinental railway running from Winnipeg, Manitoba to the Pacific coast British Columbia. East of Winnipeg the line continued as the National Transcontinental Railway (NTR), running across northern Ontario and Quebec, and ending at New Brunswick. The Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) managed and operated the entire line. The GTPR advanced huge social benefits with local employment opportunities, a telegraph service, and freight, passenger and mail transportation. Today, the majority of the GTPR is still in use as Canadian National's main line from Winnipeg to Jasper. The GTPR's high construction standards, and the fact Yellowhead Pass has the best gradients of any railway crossing of the Continental Divide in North America gives the CN a competitive advantage in terms of fuel efficiency and the ability to haul tonnage. The Port of Prince Rupert has grown with less congestion than other West Coast ports, providing proximity to the great circle route from East Asia to North America, and a fast connection to the Midwestern United States along the former GTPR route.
