Westbound on the North Track in between Lake Louise and Divide. The South track is below to the left usually used for eastbounds. The north track has only a 1.1% grade to help westbounds negotiate the undulating grade to the top of the hill before going down.

Nice pictures KootenayValleyRailway. I like the one of your train at the Spiral Tunnel. I hope you don't mind me asking but where does your trains come from and go. And how long of a trip is it?

well the westbound i had was an empty stack train which originated either in chicago or toronto i cant remember. i took the train from calgary to field where we switched off with a crew from revelstoke. on the trip back to calgary i also had a intermodle train which was loaded and it was headed for somewhere in ontario i think. a trip westbound depends on the weight and length of your train. depending on that it usually takes anywhere from 6-12 hours to get from calgary to field. the trip back is quite faster as after you make it over top of the hill its all downhill into calgary. anywhere from 5-10 hours. it also really depends on how much traffic there is on the sub.

Last week while going through the family archives I came across a pair of photos of a passenger train waiting at Laggan Station. After some quick research I realized that it is now the Lake Louise Log station. I will hopefully get a chance to scan the photos and put it on here in the future.
