    2. 2. British Columbia in a Pet! “I want High Speed Rail that goes through a tunnel, under the Strait of Georgia, and is connected by man made islands, with towers and undersea markets and schools, that connects Vancouver Island to the City of Vancouver.” European Union Directive 96/48/EC, Annex 1 defines high-speed rail as a set of three elements with precise criteria: 1.Infrastructure: track built specially for high-speed travel or specially upgraded for high-speed travel. I want High Speed Rail that goes through a tunnel and connects Vancouver Island to Vancouver. 2.Maximum Speed Limit: Minimum speed of 250 km/h (155 mph) on lines specially built for high speed and 200 km/h (124 mph) on existing lines which have been specially upgraded. This must apply to at least one section of the line. Rolling stock must have a maximum speed of at least 200 km/h to be considered high speed. 3.Operating conditions: Rolling stock must be designed alongside its infrastructure for complete compatibility, safety and quality of service… Wikipedia
    3. 3. http://transportactionbc.wordpress.com/2010/08/25/vancouver-island-railway-study-released/ Southern Rail Vancouver Island BC Canada 2010, August 25 Vancouver Island Railway Study Released Filed under: Announcement, Inter-city rail — Tags: E&N, island corridor, VIA — Matthew @ 1:03 am The provincial study on the future of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway (now owned by the Island Corridor Foundation) on Vancouver Island was released recently. The summary of the study basically concludes that it is not worth investing any money in the railway corridor. The full study can be found on the BC Ministry of Transportation site. The E&N railway is now owned by the Island Corridor Foundation. Rail service is contracted to the Southern Railway of Vancouver Island. Freight service only exists along part of the line between Courtney and Duncan. There is one round trip passenger train every day from Victoria north to Courtney and a return trip to Victoria in the afternoon. The segment of the line from Parksville to Port Alberni is out of service, although a tourist train operates on a portion of the railway near Port Alberni. One of the main problems with the rail corridor is that right of way is overgrown, tracks are worn out and years of deferred maintenance have taken their toll. Train speeds must be reduced due to the poor quality of the roadbed. This further diminishes the competitiveness of the rail service. The Island Corridor Foundation was hoping to get an investment from senior level governments to upgrade the line so it could support better VIA Rail service, commuter rail in the Victoria area, re-open the Port Alberni line and attract more freight service. It is disappointing to public transport advocates that the province of BC has no problem dropping $24 million on new interchanges (eg. McTavish Rd in North Saanich). The province, with help from the federal government will spend $1.184 billion on the South Fraser Perimeter Road (expressway). These road projects seem to get announced every week with no year-long half million dollar studies, but for non-highway projects the province isn’t interested in supporting them. Links: Announcement in the Times Colonist: “Not enough people use E&N train to warrant a commuter rail investment, province concludes” A voice lends his support to upgrading the railway.

Covering London Underground’s Metropolitan, District, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, the programme is due to see the installation by 2018 of communications-based train control on 310 km of track serving 113 stations, which accounts for approximately 40% of the capital’s metro network, together with the remodeling of 36 congested junctions. In conjunction with the introduction of new rolling stock, the work is expected to increase capacity on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines by 65%, the District Line by 24% and the Metropolitan Line by 27%. Following a competitive tender process, Bombardier was awarded a £354m contract in June 2011 to install its Cityflo 650 CBTC technology. The company has already undertaken a great deal of preparatory work, reportedly valued at around £80m. A new unified control centre has been built in west London, and trial running with a CBTC-equipped trainset has been underway on a 5 km section of the Old Dalby test track since December 2012. Citing the 'complex nature of the network and the nature of the work to be carried out over the next five years', LU and Bombardier have now agreed that LU should re-let the contract and 'continue the works with another contractor'. TfL expects to issue an OJEU notice inviting expressions of interest ‘this week’, and insists that ‘at this stage there is no change to the original delivery timetable’…. ttp://mobile.railwaygazette.com/index.php/news/news/profile/20353 PAZ-Paddon Development Email: paz4Tunnel@hotmail.ca

According to the Victoria Advanced Technology Council website, over 800 technology companies operate in the Victoria area, with combined annual revenues of $1.95 billion.[19] High Speed Internet is delivered to the island by Shaw Communications, Telus, and various local providers with their own networks. Wireless Internet connections can be found all over the Island, many free for public use. While the Island does generate much of its own power at several hydroelectric stations, increased demand required the construction of several high voltage power cables, both HVDC and AC, connecting to the Canadian Mainland. See Powerlines connecting Vancouver Island with Canadian Mainland. Logging: Outside of Victoria, Vancouver Island's economy is largely dominated by the forestry industry. Many of the logging operations are for paper pulp, in "2nd growth" tree farms that are harvested approximately every 80 years. Logging operations involving old-growth forests such as those found on Clayoquot Sound are controversial and have gained international attention through the efforts of activists and environmental organizations. Tourism: In recent years the government of British Columbia has engaged in an advertising program to draw more tourists to beach resorts in places such as Tofino and Ucluelet. Sport fishing, whale-watching, hiking, SCUBA diving, and skiing are just a few things for which tourists visit Vancouver Island. Visitors also come to see Victoria's nineteenth-century architecture, and the many villages which line the coast such as Cowichan Bay, Chemainus, and Qualicum Beach.

    13. 13. „THE PROMISE „ Canada‟s Confederation Promises: fulfilling a promise extended to British Columbia when it entered Confederation in 1871 Constitution Tunnel The railway was originally built between eastern Canada and British Columbia between 1881 and 1885 (connecting with Ottawa Valley and Georgian Bay area lines built earlier), fulfilling a promise extended to British Columbia when it entered Confederation in 1871. It was Canada's first transcontinental railway, but currently does not reach the Atlantic coast. Primarily a freight railway, the CPR was for decades the only practical means of long-distance passenger transport in most regions of Canada, and was instrumental in the settlement and development of Western Canada. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Pacific_Railway Canadian Pacific Railway the first spike was driven into a sunken railway tie at Bonfield, Ontario (previously called Callander Station) where the first spike was driven into a sunken railway tie The Last Spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway was the ceremonial final spike driven into the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) at Craigellachie, British Columbia at 9:22 am on November 7, 1885. It was driven in by CPR railroad financier Donald Smith, marking the end of a saga of natural disasters, financial crises, and even rebellion that plagued Canada's first transcontinental railroad from its beginning….

Railway Confederation Promises Canadian Pacific Railway Bonfield, Ontario (previously called Callander Station) where the first spike was driven into a sunken railway tie The first obstacle to its construction is political. A logical route through to the city of Vancouver, BC, Canada. The difficulty of building a railroad through the Canadian Rockies submerged under the Strait of Georgia, is feasible. An entirely Canadian rail and highway route would require crossing 30 km (17 mi) of rugged undersea terrain. This is not barren ocean and the seabed's and life, sponges, must be protected and all risks assessed and preventive measures planned and acted upon, to ensure this routing is protected and risks nullified. , The government offered huge incentives including vast grants of land in Western Canada in 1881. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Pacific_Railway PAZ-Paddon Development Email: paz4Tunnel@hotmail.ca

Constitution Tunnel Constitution Tunnel needs backing and promotions from a financier like famed Jay Cooke. In the summer of 1885 Cooke, brought the first real momentum to the company. Jay Cooke takes control For the next six years, backers of the road struggled to find financing. Though John Gregory Smith succeeded Perham as president on January 5, 1885, groundbreaking did not take place until February 15, 1885, at Thompson Junction, Minnesota, 25 miles (40 km) west of Duluth, Minnesota. The backing and promotions of famed financier Jay Cooke in the summer of 1885 brought the first real momentum to the company. Over the course of 1885, the Northern Pacific pushed westward from Minnesota into present-day North Dakota. Surveyors and construction crews had to maneuver through swamps, bogs, and tamarack forests. The difficult terrain and insufficient funding delayed by six months the construction phase in Minnesota.[1] The NP also began building its line north from Kalama, Washington Territory, on the Columbia River outside of Portland, Oregon, towards Puget Sound. Four small construction engines were purchased, the Minnetonka, Itaska, Ottertail and St. Cloud, the first of which was shipped to Kalama by ship around Cape Horn. In Minnesota, the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad completed construction of its 155-mile (249 km) line stretching from Saint Paul to Lake Superior at Duluth in 1885. It was leased to the Northern Pacific the following year, and was eventually absorbed by the Northern Pacific.

The entity is an independent country history of an island railroad and a functioning island (also known as a State with a railway in perpetuity … Canadian Confederation of capital "s") or not. A country 1867, and the incorporation of British need only fail on one of the eight Columbia into Canada in 1871. The criteria to not meet the definition terms of union required that within of independent country status. two years, the federal government Scotland does not meet all eight criteria; it fails on six of the eight was to start the construction of a criteria... railway from the "seaboard of British Columbia" joining the new province BC itself has a transportation system and Victoria with the railway system of but the system is not fully under BC Canada. On its part, British Columbia was control. The BC Legislature controls to grant a band of public land of up to 32 kilometres (20 mi) in width along either side of the railway line to the federal government for it to use in furtherance of the construction of the railway. The Pacific terminus of the railway was not specific would see the railway cross the Rockies by the Yellowhead Pass and reach the BC coast at Bute Inlet. It would cross Sonora Island and Quadra Island and reach Vancouver Island by a bridge across Seymour Narrows. Country, State, and Nation Definining an Independent Country By Matt Rosenberg. http://geography.about.com/cs/politicalgeog/a/statenation. html . Updated October 05, 2011 While the terms country, state, and nation are often used interchangeably, there is a difference. Independent Countries: Let's start with what defines a State or an independent country. An independent State: 1. Has space or territory which has internationally recognized boundaries (boundary disputes are OK). 2. Has people who live there on an ongoing basis. 3. Has economic activity and an organized economy.

    17. 17. Last Spike Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway : Sir John A. Macdonald drove the last Spike, Cliffside, Shawnigan Lake, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, August 13, 1886. Constitution Tunnel The last spike was gold and the hammer was silver. On 13 August 1886, the last spike was driven at Cliffside, about 40 kilometres (25 mi) north of Victoria. Construction of the island railway took three and a half years. Prime Minister Macdonald drove the last spike, during his only visit to British Columbia. The railway was extended to Dunsmuir's mine at Wellington in 1887, and into Victoria in 1888. It was extended west to Port Alberni in 1911, west to Lake Cowichan in 1912, and north to Courtenay in 1914. The E&N Railway was originally to have been built all the way to Campbell River, but that plan fell through due to the outbreak of World War I.

    21. 21. Alstom and Adif to develop dual-gauge signaling SPANISH infrastructure manager Adif and Alstom have signed an agreement to develop a new dualgauge signalling system for 1668mm-gauge and 1435mm-gauge trains operating on the same tracks. According to Adif, Alstom will design an ERTMS system for the mixed-gauge lines at its technology centre in Malaga. Alstom will also conduct track testing, develop new products to enhance the systems functionality raised, and obtain safety certification. Adif has to date upgraded 170km of track to accommodate dual gauge, predominantly between Barcelona and the French border, as well as some individual sections including the Tardienta - Huesca line, with 99% of the work carried out by Alstom. The Mediterranean Freight Corridor, which is reliant on the institution of dual-gauge to allow services to operate seamlessly between eastern Spain and Northern Europe, is expected to be operational by 2015. The project is part of a five-year agreement between Adif and Alstom signed in November 2012 to carry out research and development projects in Malaga.

    22. 22. High Speed Rail Corridor Constitution Tunnel NC-To-DC High Speed Rail Compact To Meet In Va. January 7, 2014 6:00 AM RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia and North Carolina representatives are scheduled to meet on the development of high-speed rail service from Charlotte, N.C., to Washington, D.C. Members of the Virginia-North Carolina Interstate High Speed Rail Compact are to meet Tuesday in Richmond. The panel is made up of members from each state’s legislature. The compact was created by both states to develop the high-speed rail corridor. A primary goal is obtaining federal funding. In 2012, Virginia received nearly $75 million for the project.

Over the course of 2010, the initiative culminated in the release of four separate reports: U.S. Manufacture of Rail Vehicles for Intercity Passenger Rail and Urban Transit , Duke University Center on Globalization, Governance & Competitiveness Modeled on its previous analyses of the hybrid truck and public transit bus supply chains, the Center on Globalization, Governance & Competitiveness mapped the supply chain for the U.S. passenger railcar in dustry.The study details nearly 250 existing manufacturing locations in 35 states that are currently producing rail vehicles or component parts. While domestic manufacturers exist in many of the industry subsectors, the U.S. supply chain has several gaps , and many higher-value added activities are still performed abroad. The U.S. passenger and transit rail supply chain currently supports between 10,000 and 14,000 employees, numbers that could grow with scaled-up U.S. investments in public transit and intercity rail. p5
    24. 24. US Rail 1864–1970 Northern Pacific Railway : 1867 Confederation Coast To Coast Constitution Tunnel Transportation Financing The Northern Pacific Railway (NP, Northern Pacific Railway Wikipedia) was a transcontinental railroad that operated across the northern tier of the western United States from Minnesota to the Pacific Coast. It was approved by Congress in 1864 and given nearly 40 million acres (160,000 km2) of land grants, which it used to raise money in Europe for construction. Construction began in 1870 and the main line opened all the way from the Great Lakes to the Pacific when former president Ulysses S. Grant drove in the final "golden spike" in western Montana on Sept. 8, 1883. The railroad had about 6800 miles of track and served a large area, including extensive trackage in the states of Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. In addition the company had international branches to Winnipeg, Manitoba, and southeastern British Columbia, Canada. The main activities were shipping wheat and other farm products, cattle, timber and minerals; bringing in consumer goods, transporting passengers; and selling land. The company was headquartered first in Brainerd, Minnesota, then in Saint Paul, Minnesota. It had a tumultuous financial history, and in 1970 it merged with other lines to form the Burlington Northern Railroad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Pacific_Railway Congress chartered the Northern Pacific Railway Company on July 2, 1885 with the goals of 1) connecting the Great Lakes with Puget Sound on the Pacific, 2) opening vast new lands for farming, ranching, lumbering and mining, and 3) linking Washington and Oregon to the rest of the country. Congress granted the railroad a potential 60 million acres (243,000 km2) of land in exchange for building rail transportation to an undeveloped territory. Josiah Perham was elected its first president on December 7, 1885. It could not use all the land and in the end took just under 40 million acres. Jay Cooke takes control: February 15, 1885, at Thompson Junction, Minnesota, 25 miles (40 km) west of Duluth, Minnesota. The backing and promotions of famed financier Jay Cooke in the summer of 1885 brought the first real momentum to the company. For the next six years, backers of the road struggled to find financing. Though John Gregory Smith succeeded Perham as president on January 5, 1885, groundbreaking did not take place until (..). Over the course of 1885, the Northern Pacific pushed westward from Minnesota into present-day North Dakota. Surveyors and construction crews had to maneuver through swamps, bogs, and tamarack forests. The difficult terrain and insufficient funding delayed by six months the construction phase in Minnesota.[1] The NP also began building its line north from Kalama, Washington Territory, on the Columbia River outside of Portland, Oregon, towards Puget Sound. Four small construction engines were purchased, the Minnetonka, Itaska, Ottertail and St. Cloud, the first of which was shipped to Kalama by ship around Cape Horn. In Minnesota, the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad completed construction of its 155-mile (249 km) line stretching from Saint Paul to Lake Superior at Duluth in 1885. It was leased to the Northern Pacific the following year, and was eventually absorbed by the Northern Pacific PAZ-Paddon Development Email: paz4Tunnel@hotmail.ca
