There is no railroad spot in Canada more famous than Canadian Pacific’s Kicking Horse Pass. This vital link in the transcontinental route was originally a brutal 4.5% grade until the famous Spiral Tunnels lowered the gradient to a more manageable 2%. We take you to this Rocky Mountain paradise in and show you the route from Golden, British Columbia to the Bow River Valley in Alberta east of Lake Louise. Included are heavy mixed freight trains and unit coal trains, leased diesel power, and new CP power. You’ll enjoy the stunning scenery throughout the Kicking Horse Canyon from Golden to Field, where engine crews are changed. Then the big climb begins, including two spiral tunnels and the cresting of the summit at the Continental Divide. Watch 3 sections of the same train moving at the Spiral tunnel, and enjoy beautiful snow capped Rocky Mountain Scenery. Informative narration and area maps.

    This 1992 video (2004 DVD) was the first program in the western canada series. there is still lots of great action in the mountains as well as some perfect runbys from various freights. Now over 25 years later, the memories endured.
