CP/CN Fraser River Canyon

I had relatives in Kamloops BC so as a kid I made a

few trips with the fam from the States as a camping

trip. Traveling Hiway 1 through the Fraser River Canyon

from Hope to Kamloops your are going to see a dozen

trains minimum on your way. Made several trips up the

Fraser River Canyon in the late 70' and early 80's.

Last was my video tour in 1993 and while that video

has some great moments its not as complete as this

fellow posted on YouTube. All kinds of changes to

Fraser River railroads CP/CN as an agreement was

worked out to basically make the Fraser River Canyon

"joint-track" and trains of each railroad could be running

opposite of normal. The CN has the most level route

and the CP has the most unlevel route. The thing is

neither railroad can send a heavy train east. Its always

a westbound coal train or a grain train or some other

120 car unit train heading for Vancouver or Roberts Bank.

The Fraser River Canyon experience is something I can

still recall vividly in my mind.
