Synopsis: The Big Hill was the most difficult and dangerous part of the mountainous section of the trans-Canada railway. The final solution to its steep and treacherous decline is incredible!

From the Back Cover: Railway history comes alive in this fascinating book about one of Canada's most incredible railway stories. The Spiral Tunnels and The Big Hill describes the construction and operation of the world-famous Canadian Pacific Railway through the treacherous Kicking Horse Pass in the Canadian Rockies. The perils of operating the section of track at the notorious ""Big Hill"" on the western slopes of the Great Divide are recounted through tales of disaster and defiance and are illustrated with over 60 black and white photographs. The Spiral Tunnels are explained through stories, maps and diagrams which reveal the operation of the tunnels and how they solved the problems which resulted in so much mayhem and madness. The Spiral Tunnels and The Big Hill is informative and entertaining reading for railways enthusiasts, as well as for those with a general interest in the human history of the Canadian Rockies and Yoho National Park.
