This is the Canadian Pacific Railway's " Big Hill", eight miles of 2.2% grade leading to the crest of the continental divide. Ahead are the famed Spiral Tunnels which the train must negotiate on the winding route out of the valley. In steam days, one or more locomotives were added to all eastbound trains at Field.
