CONNAUGHT TUNNEL
THE Connaught Tunnel, through
Mount Macdonald, just east of
Glacier station, was built to avoid
the climb over the top of Rogers
Pass. It is the longest tunnel in
_Qat_-E-dQ measuring exactly five
miles from portal to portal.
In addition to eliminating snowsheds, it shortens the distance
across the Selkirk Mountains by
4 1/2 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 6 inches from the
base of rail to the crown. Mount
Macdonald towers more than a
mile above the railway in almost
vertical height.

THE SPIRAL TUNNELS
PRIOR 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 4.5 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 Tunnels No. 1, 3,206
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
2,890 feet long and the grade
produces a difference in
elevation of about 45 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." 1 y liii ll Wm iiiiiii n nil iii i liiMirnwr

THE DOMINION
THE
CANADIAN PACIFIC
npHE contract between the
•*• Canadian Pacific Railway
Company and the Government
of the Dominion of Canada,
entered into 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: the last
spike was driven at Craigella-
chie on November 7, 1885, and
the first train, inaugurating
trans - Canada transportation
service, left Montreal on June
28,1886, for the Pacific Coast.
Later, it was natural, that
increasing trade should see
many millions spent in grade
reductions and in the erection
of permanent structures.
Amongst other things, this
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, respectively, both
of which are illustrated on the
reverse side of this menu.

IT will be a great aid to the service and will avoid any possibility of mistakes if passengers will kindly ask for meal order blanks, and upon them will write their orders,
because stewards and waiters are not allowed to serve any food without a meal check.
TT is with pleasure and pride that we call attention to the desire and
willingness of all our employees to give their utmost in  service and
Special attention and they as well as ourselves would appreciate your
criticisms as well as your commendations.

THE
CANADIAN 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 ' * N ational 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 and
Emerald Lake (nearField), are
delightful Canadian Pacific
mountain hotels — supplemented by rustic chalet bungalow camps at Lake Wapta,
the Yoho Valley, Lake O 'Hara,
Moraine Lake, and Radium
Hot Springs on the new
Banff - Windermere automobile  highway. ftft-ftft.
