    The loops on the west side of Rogers Pass near Cambie were a dramatic feature of the line. These two large loops like a twisted dog bone helped trains climb the steep grades through Glacier and on to the summit at Rogers Pass. This was all replaced by the digging of the Connaught tunnel in 1916.
    The highway now uses some of the old right of way to get through this mountain barrier. All that is left of the old track are thes old columns that used to carry the track across Loop Brook.
