Triple Heading to the Spiral Tunnels DVD
Steam in the Canadian Rockies
The handful of double and triple-headed shots of at the beginning of this DVD document incredible history!
Hiking across the face of Cathedral Peak, Will Whittaker shot Mikados, Santa Fes (2-10-2s), and dozens of the mighty 2-10-4 Selkirks, double and often triple headed. The double and triple-heading are only found in the first historic section of this DVD but are well worth it!
Summer: In the fifties Will Whittaker dropped off a local at Yoho, mid-way between the upper and lower Spiral Tunnels to capture a steam display that could only be equaled at Horseshoe Curve. In one four hour period in Summer as many as ten sections of Canadian Pacific Transcontinental trains tackled Field Hill. We see glimpses of Fraser Canyon, Revelstoke and the twice weekly mixed to Arrowhead. Winter: Then, in winter 1978, a single Hudson is photographed from Golden, through the Spiral Tunnels, to Calgary with a 1950s matched maroon, semi-streamlined consist. Closes with Royal Hudson 2860 captured on film as she makes her famous run along the cliff-ringed shore of Howe Sound.
