SOUVENIR  COPY  OF THIS   MENU   CARD   IN   ENVELOPE   READY   FOR   MAILING   MAY   BE   HAD  ON   APPLICATION  TO   DINING   CAR   STEWARD The    Spiral   Tunnels
WHEN the original Canadian Pacific line was built through
the Rocky Mountains, there was no time for elaborate
construction. British Columbia had entered Confederation in 1871 on the Dominion of Canada's promise to establish
railway communication between the Pacific Coast and Eastern
Canada. To the officers of the Canadian Pacific, which was
given the monumental task of building the promised railway,
the elimination of heavy grades seemed less important than
the speedy linking-up of Canada's isolated provinces.
The steep grades on the section between the Great Divide and
Field, B.C., were successfully operated for 24 years without an
accident to a passenger train, but by 1908 the increase in
density of traffic across the mountains made a reduction of the
grades a necessity. The problem was easy to propose -— but
harder to solve. There was no escape from the pass. Even
if tracks could be hung on the precipitous walls of the Yoho
Valley, they would be exposed to danger from' snow-slides,
and the construction and upkeep-cost would be prohibitive,
Some other solution had to be found. It was in the famous
Spiral Tunnels, opened in August, 1909,
The new line leaves the old a short distance west of Hector,
and crosses the Kicking Horse River. Gradually it veers to
the south-west, away from the river, and runs straight into the
side of Cathedral Mountain. Within the rocky heart of the
mountain it turns a circle to the left, passes under itself, and
emerges 48 feet lower down, and pointed now towards the north.
Past Yoho it turns slightly to the east and crosses the old line.
Then it re-crosses the Kicking Horse River, and swings north
into Tunnel No. 2 in the side of Mount Ogden. Again it turns,
this time to the right, once more passes under itself and is 45
feet lower down when it emerges pointed towards the south-west.
For the third time it crosses the Kicking Horse River, and just
before it re-joins the old line near Field it passes through a
tunnel 170 feet in length.
The old line was 4.1 miles in length and had a maximum grade
of 4.5%. The new line is 8.2 miles in length with a maximum
grade of 2.2%. Two locomotives of the same type and size
as the four used previously can now haul a heavier train up the
valley. The total cost of the grade-revision, tunnels and bridges
was slightly more than $1,000,000. The abandoned line was
given to the Dominion Government for use as a driving-road.
With its superb vistas of the Yoho Valley, the snow-clad mountains and the glaciers, this drive along the rim of the canyon
is as delightful as any in the Rockies.
The Spiral Tunnels bear mute but powerful witness to the
resourcefulness of Canadian engineers and the never-ceasing
efforts of the Canadian Pacific to improve its equipment.
