The trains originated in St. Paul, Minnesota on the CPR-controlled SOO Line (the St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie Railway) and ran in a northwesterly direction to Portal, North Dakota and North Portal, Saskatchewan. From there they ran over the Canadian Pacific across the prairies to Lethbridge and crossed the Rockies through the Crowsnest Pass, passed through Cranbrook and re-crossed the Canada-United States border at Kingsgate/Eastport. The trains then passed over the Spokane International to Spokane and then transferred to the O.R.& N to make a fast run along the Columbia River to Portland.
