Along the White Pass Line, 1950-51
Photos from the collection of Faye Almas
Below, some of the glaciers and waterfalls along the Inside Passage to Skagway.
The next 8 photos below show Skagway, including the July 4th parade.
Heading up the White Pass. The diagonal line running from the rail line to the river in the centre of
the photo on the left is probably a tramway that ran down to White Pass City while the railway was being built.
The photo on the right shows the wreckage of the tramway terminus
of the Inspiration Point Mine.
In the next 5 photos below, a derail at Pennington leaves passengers relaxing while the
crew works to get the rolling stock rolling again.
The remains of the speeder on the left below is still sitting in the WP&YR yards in Skagway (2004).
The view in the photo on the right is southbound at Log Cabin, BC.
The two photos below were shot at Glacier.
On the left below is a train at the Glacier water tank, as seen from Glacier Station. The dog sled to the right
is at Pennington.
The rotary plow on the left is at Log Cabin. This shot looks north from the section house.
Left and below, scenes from Bennett.
The woman on the left in the photo below compiled this photo collection, later passing it on to
her niece. The woman in the centre of the bottom row is sitting on a valve on the fuel pipeline
that was constructed as part of the Canol Project in 1943.
