In the 1880's, Canada's future lay in the railway, the iron track that would unite the nation from coast to coast. But the Canadian climate and geography were a far cry from the tamer landscape railway surveyors were accustomed to in England. And while they tried to follow the paths of early explorers wherever they could, the railway pushed them into uncharted territory—over perilous swamps, across thousands of waterways and endless prairies, culminating with the feat of tunneling through mountains and constructing sky-high bridges over cavernous passes.

Confederation in 1867 sparked dreams of a transcontinental railway. While laying track across a flat and predictable landscape is already a mammoth task, Canada's railway workers were faced with the incomprehensible distance of more than 5,500 km and unimaginable challenges.
