  • “British Columbia in a Pet Uncle Aleck: Don‟t frown so, my dear, you‟ll have your railway, by and bye. Miss B. Columbia: I want it now! You promised I should have it, and if I don‟t, I‟ll complain to Ma.”
  • 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

  • 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.

  • Natural Resources Announces Douglas Eyford as Special Federal Representative March 19, 2013 Minister Oliver Announces Douglas Eyford as Special Federal Representative March 19, 2013 Terrace, B.C. — The Honourable Joe Oliver, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, today announced the appointment of Douglas Eyford as the Government of Canada’s Special Federal Representative on West Coast Energy Infrastructure. Mr. Eyford will engage with Aboriginal communities in British Columbia and Alberta that could benefit from future energy infrastructure development. Minister Oliver made the announcement from the Long House Waap Galts'ap at the Northwest Community College’s Terrace Campus. “The Government of Canada must and will make every effort to ensure that Aboriginal peoples in Canada have the opportunity to share the benefits of energy resource development in the years ahead,” said Minister Oliver. “We will work with Aboriginal communities to ensure they have an opportunity to actively participate in developing Canada’s energy resources and protecting our environment.” Mr. Eyford appointment reflects three important principles that are helping guide the Government of Canada’s plan for Responsible Resource Development: Inclusive prosperity, which involves forging a prosperity that includes all Canadians; Environmental prosperity, which emphasizes that Canada’s well-being involves both economic and environmental prosperity; and. Engagement with Aboriginal peoples to facilitate greater participation in West Coast Resource Development. The work of the Special Federal Representative will complement rather than duplicate or substitute for the Crown’s duty to consult on individual projects. As Special Federal Representative, Mr. Eyford will report directly to the Prime Minister. He will present a Preliminary Report to the Prime Minister by June 28, 2013, and will issue a Final Report by November 29, 2013., “The goal is clear. Douglas Eyford will help identify opportunities to facilitate greater participation by Aboriginal peoples in resource development while at the same time identifying ways in which Aboriginal peoples can play a greater role in strengthening environmental protection,” said Minister Oliver. “Our Government believes that, by working together with Aboriginal peoples, provinces and industry, all Canadians can share in the jobs and prosperity that await us if we act now for the good of Canada.” Natural Resources Canada will provide support and advice to the Special Federal Representative in carrying out his mandate. http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/media-room/news-releases/2013/6969 PAZ-Paddon Development Email: paz4Tunnel@hotmail.ca Constitution Tunnel

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.

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.

  • 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

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.

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.

  • 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.

He completed the line between Saint Paul, Minnesota, and Wallula (where it connected with the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company’s line to Portland), witnessing the driving of the last spike on September 8, 1883.[15] Thereafter, he evaluated possible routes for the Cascade Division, intended to connect the NP at some point near the mouth of the Snake River with Tacoma, Washington on Puget Sound. Preliminary reconnaissance and surveys began in March 1880, and in autumn, 1883, Anderson concluded that the line should be built through Stampede Pass.

  • 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.
