0204.0006: Negotiating the Frank Slide

Kettle-Valley Railway passenger car coming through the Frank Slide in 1949. Joe Smuin has added: This is a passenger train, possibly a 'mixed train' which may have in fact transited Kettle Valley territory much further west - assuming the train is eastbound and a passenger train. If it is a mixed train (looks like a caboose on the tail-end) then it will not have been as far as KV territory. Please remember that the Kettle Valley Railway ran from Midway, B.C. west to either Spence's Bridge or Odlum, B.C. The KVR was absorbed into the BC District of the C.P.R. in 1931. Except for a few miles at Grand Forks, B.C., no territory east of Midway, B.C. was ever part of the KVR or subsequent KV Division.
