The southern Canadian Rockies are a breathtaking spectacle shouldering the Continental Divide and boundary of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. Topped with glaciers and surrounded by emerald lakes and rivers, their beauty is beyond pictures or words.

For those who built the Canadian Pacific, these mountains were the ultimate obstacle to overcome. The route they chose was the difficult ascent over Kicking Horse Pass. Known to railroaders as “The Big Hill”, Canadian Pacific trains have been climbing this grade since 1884 and it is still an amazing sight today!

Beginning at Field, BC, we follow the Laggan Sub east to Exshaw, Alberta. Watch trains battle the 2.2% grade above the Kicking Horse River, pass through the incredible Spiral Tunnels, and sprint along the bank of the scenic Bow River. See 10,000 foot stack trains, unit grain, potash, and mixed manifests. We also catch The Rocky Mountaineer, Canada’s premiere passenger train. There’s nothing like mountain railroading in the Canadian Rockies!

    Disclaimer: I live here, so I’m biased.

    The Laggan sub is more than just the pass – it winds up the Bow valley for most of its length, and the spectacular peaks are a near-constant companion. This video does them justice, and for that alone, I’d recommend it!
