We’ve extended our May trivia contest through June! To enter, simply answer one multiple choice question about the history of the Canadian Pacific Railway. If you answer correctly, you’ll be entered in a draw to win a prize. Graeme Pole has generously donated one of his books titled The Spiral Tunnels and the Big Hill on the Canadian Pacific Railway for a prize. It’s a great book to add to your summer reading list.
The Spiral Tunnels and the Big Hill chronicles tales of daring, disaster, and defiance on what was the second-steepest mainline railway track ever operated in North America. You’ll learn how a safer grade was created for today’s trains, and how railways are operated today. Maps, diagrams, and archival photographs depict the evolution of railroading through Kicking Horse Pass.
Best of luck!
