The Canadian Pacific Railway was built to unite all the Canadian Provinces with a transcontinental line running from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Many obstacles were encountered during construction including the Rocky Mountains, a formidable range of mountains in Western Alberta and Eastern British Columbia. Originally planned to run further north, the line eventually crossed the Continental Divide at Kicking Horse Pass, a challenge to railway operating that still exists today despite the use of high-horsepower diesel locomotives. Illustrated with unique photographs, taken over a number of years, this book covers the line from Exshaw, where it first encounters the Rockies, to Golden. The variety of traffic found on the line is shown against a backdrop of stunning scenery that is encountered along the line. Also detailed is the other Canadian Pacific line in the south of Alberta, which traverses Crowsnest Pass.

For those who like to see trains in spectacular landscapes this THE book. Nearly all diesel hauled freight trains including some images of historic locomotives.

Undoubtedly gorgeous scenery and varied locations for the pictures. Certainly a book for those devoted to Canadian railways and those who love mountain scenery.

The variety of traffic found on these lines is shown against a backdrop of stunning scenery. There are regular freight services and special workings – track evaluation, maintenance-of-way, snow spreaders, charter passenger, the Rocky Mountaineer, and even steam specials.

This is quite a body for work for one enthusiast.

An interesting and potentially inspiring collection.
