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 was reduced to 2.2 per cent. From
the east, the track enters Tunnel No. 1, 3,206
feet in length, turns under Cathedral Mountain
at an angle of about 250 degrees on a 573
foot radius, passes under itself and emerges
at the opposite 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
between portals. 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 making its way up
"the big grade" at a higher or lower level.
CONNAUGHT   TUNNEL
■TPHE 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 double track
tunnel in America, measuring exactly five
miles from portal to portal.
In addition to eliminating snowsheds, it
shortens the distance across the Selkirk *
Mountains by 4^ 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 obtained 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
CANADIAN  PACIFIC
J. HE agreement 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 Craigellachie
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.

THE
CANADIAN   ROCKIES
X HE 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 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, namely Banff, Yoho,
Kootenay, Glacier, Mt. Revelstoke/Waterton.
At Banff, Lake Louise and Emerald
Lake (near Field), are delightful Canadian
Pacific mountain hotels — supplemented
by rustic lodges at Lake Wapta, the Yoho
Valley, Lake O'Hara and Moraine Lake. ,
