The Brockville Railway Tunnel was completed 21 years before construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway even began and predates all of the rail tunnels in the Western Rockies. Controversial for its time, the Tunnel was a major feat of engineering and it remains a remarkable example of Canada’s pre-Confederation industrial heritage. Take a journey through time with us on this tour as we look back at all the challenges it has faced in the past 166 years. Click here to start.
