" More mother nature then the CPR, which put a stop to the grade, snow slides and fires. "

Hi Ken  :wave:

The 'Skyline' ? ... or the 'Lucky Line' ? ... That is the question.  ;)

I am just AMAZED that anyone even thought that building a railroad there was even possible !  :shocked:

" ... or was it the start of the proposed extension to Silverton (not Colorado)

the grade would drop close to 1800 Feet to arrive in Silverton. "

The 'K.& S.Rly.' line elevations & miles shown here, are fascinating ...  L:

... as is the brief history of the railway, its abandoned sections & from 3' to Std. Gauge in some parts.

Kaslo & Slocan Railway ... From Google Images.

" Another project at the time in 1908 was a new Wye being built in Cody,

there the grade at least had ties laid, rail was never laid. "

The route along the Kaslo River looks AMAZING !  :cool:
