THE ROUTE
TUNNELS. *J*HE Connaught Tunnel, through
Mount Macdonald, just east of
Glacier Station, was built to avoid
the climb over the top of Rogers
Pass, through a gorge subject in
winter and spring to heavy snow-
slides, against which the railway
was protected by 4}/2 miles of
permanent snowsheds. The tunnel
is the longest tunnel in America,
measuring exactly five miles from
portal to portal.
In addition to eliminating snow-
sheds, it shortens the distance
across the Selkirk Mountains by
Ay2 miles, lowers the summit
attained by the railway by 552 feet,
and reduces track curvature by an
amount corresponding to 7 complete circles. Perfect ventilation
is attained by powerful fans. The
tunnel is double tracked, and
measures 29 feet from side to
side and 21 feet 6J^ inches from
the base rail to the crown. Mount
Macdonald towers nearly a mile
above the railway in almost vertical  height.

THE SPIRAL TUNNELS
T>RIOR to 1908 Hector and
-*- Field stations were separated by such extreme grades
that four consolidation locomotives were required to haul
a trainload of freight over this
section. For about three
miles a grade of 4.4 per cent
prevailed —■ ten times the
maximum gradient normally
permitted on heavy prairie
work.
By the construction of these
Spiral Tunnels this grade has
now been reduced to 2.2 per
cent. From the east, the
track enters Tunnel No. 1,
3,255 feet in length, turning
an angle under Cathedral
Mountain of about 250 degrees on a 573 foot radius,
passing under itself and
emerging at the portal 54 feet
lower. Tunnel No. 2, under
Mount Ogden, has a similar
radius through an angle of
232 degrees; it is 2,922 feet
long and the grade produces
a difference in elevation of
about 50 feet at the portal.
Thus the railway traverses
the valley by three lines at
different elevations . and
crosses and re-crosses the
Kicking Horse River by four
bridges. Two engines can
now haul a bigger load up
the valley than the four previously used.
The two tunnels are a perfect maze, for the railway
doubles upon itself twice and
forms a rough figure "8" in
shape. If the train is run
in two sections, passengers
are able to see the other
section at a higher or lower
level, making its way up "the
big grade." RAILROADING IN THE
ROCKIES
*T*HE contract between the
-*- Canadian Pacific Railway
Company and the Government of the Dominion of
Canada, entered ig.to in 1880,
to build a railway across the
prairies and through the
Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast, called for completion in ten years' time.
Actually, the railway was
completed, and through trains
run, in half this time. But
speedy construction through
the Rocky Mountains necessitated a considerable amount
of temporary work. The judgment of this has been fully
warranted, first in the matter
of early operation, and later
by a realization of a large
saving in first cost. It was
natural, however, that increasing trade should see
many millions spent in grade
reductions and in the erection
of permanent structures.
Amongst other things, this
has involved the construction
of a most interesting system
of tunnels and of one of the
longest tunnels on the continent —■ the Spiral Tunnels
at Field and the Connaught
Tunnel at Glacier, both of
which are illustrated on the
reverse side of this menu.

SOME FACTS ABOUT THE
CANADIAN PACIFIC
ROCKIES
*TpHE Rocky Mountains, the
Selkirk Mountains, and
the other related ranges have-
within reach of railway transportation—over six hundred
and fifty mountain peaks
6,000 feet above sea level, or
higher. One hundred and
forty-four are 10,000 feet or
higher.
There are many score of
passes six, seven, eight or
nine thousand feet in height.
Canada has reserved in its
mountain ■ 'National parks''
over 9,800 square miles—an
area nearly five times as big
as one of its own provinces
(Prince Edward Island). Six
of these are on, or reached
from, the Canadian Pacific.
At Banff, Lake Louise,
Emerald Lake (near Field),
Glacier and Sicamous are delightful Canadian Pacific
mountain hotels — supplemented by bungalow camps
at Wapta Lake, the Yoho
Valley, Lake O'Hara, Lake
Windermere, Moraine Lake,
and three points on the new
Banff -Windermere automobile road. -     Wa
