The entertaining story of the construction and operation of the steepest grade down the west side of the Kicking Horse Pass on the Canadian Pacific Railroad and the ingenious pair of spiral tunnels that reduced the grade by half. The author also presents some of the people who had major roles in the project; and offers anecdotes that enlighten and entertain. This slim book is well suited to take in your car's glovebox on a train-spotting trip through Yoho National Park as a helpful scenic guide concludes this volume.
