I like these two films from the National Film Board of Canada. It covers the era I find most interesting and all facets of Canadian railroading as it was at the time (1950's).

Plus there is some rare CNR C-Liner footage. :-)

Railroaders 1958–(YouTube)
And this one that takes place on the CPR mainline in Rogers Pass in winter of 1958.

Another video I like is called "End of the Line", another NFB production. It profiles the very end of steam on the CNR in eastern Canada. The interviews with crews were most prophetic. (again, there's some C-Liner & H16-44 action in the backgrounds)
