The Selkirk Mountains touch the sky at over 11,000 feet in southeastern British Columbia, Canada. Encircled by the Columbia River and dressed in a richly forested garment, the sheer jagged peaks produce an aura of beauty and danger.

Deep within the heart of these mountains, a transcontinental rail line passes through two different tunnels: the five mile long Connaught Tunnel and the nine mile long Mount Macdonald Tunnel, which is the longest railway tunnel in the western hemisphere. This is Canadian Pacific’s route over Roger’s Pass!

Between Revelstoke and Field, the Mountain Sub lives up to its name with stiff grades of 2.4% that burrow under dangerous avalanche zones. Part of CP’s 3,000 mile trans- continental line from Montreal to Vancouver, the Mountain Sub sees high priority intermodal trains, unit grain trains, 152 car coal trains, monster 170 car potash trains, and Canada’s premiere passenger train, The Rocky Mountaineer.

A combination of fantastic Canadian scenery and hard-working trains is what this program is all about!

    West of Kicking Horse Pass is Rogers Pass. Mountain railroading that can not be beat. The trains of the CPR are huge. Unit trains well over 150 cars long, hauling products from the Canadian prairies & beyond…. potash grain, coal etc…. to the pacific ports. These trains are tackling grades well over 2%, and they are doing it. Wowwww. Add in all the fantastic scenery…..rivers, mountains, tunnels, wildlife…. etc. Excellent production.
