Kootenay Valley Railway


With power consisting of no less than 4 SD40-2s and a GP38-2, the KVR's Hotshot is shown making its way from Tadanac yard in Trail to the crew change point of Nelson. This trip of 47 miles goes through some of the most beautiful scenery in Canada.

The KVR is a separate business unit of CP, consisting of the former Nelson, Boundary and Rossland subdivisions between McConnel (near Cranbrook) and Trail in the southern interior of BC. Only one mainline train, the hotshot, operates over it.
