Conceived in the late 1880's as a route to allow the mines of the Kootenay District of southern British Columbia access to the coast and Vancouver, the Kettle Valley Railway became an epic struggle of personalities, politics, finance and geography. Over half a dozen governments rose or fell on issues related to its development and construction. Approximately 100 workers died building and operating it.

Archival photographs and several from the author's personal collection illustrate the history of the Kettle Valley Railway from its construction through its turbulent lifespan and eventual demise. These moving visual images celebrate the magnitude of the engineering feats achieved by Andrew McCulloch and the many workers who made the railway a reality. Many workers died in the attempt to lay track across three mountain ranges and some of the world's most rugged river canyons. More lost their lives in the railway's subsequent years of operating freight and passenger services on the sometimes treacherous tracks of British Columbia's southern interior.
