Max Jacquiard - The Loops in Rogers Pass

As originally constructed, the C.P.R. mainline through the Selkirk mountains
crossed over the summit of Rogers Pass featuring steep grades and many
snowsheds to protect the line against snow slides that plagued the area. To
reduce the grade to manageable levels a series of loops was employed in the
valley west of the summit. The eastbound train is travelling through a string
of snowsheds after negotiating the loops which included four bridges besides
the one in the picture. The completion of the Connaught tunnel under the pass
in 1916 eliminated all of this trackage. The new line leading to the tunnel now
runs straight along the middle of the valley which is once again heavily forested.
A number of the stone piers that supported the bridges stand and can be
explored from the Loops campground just off #1 highway.

Max Jacquiard has a sizeable research library of printed materials, photos and
slides of steam trains and the places they would have operated. It is that attention
to precise and accurate details that can be seen in his paintings. The sensitivity
to his subject and quiet passion that is infused into each work seem to allow
Max Jaquiard to breath life into the canvases. The images he creates have
captured the imaginations of steam buffs across Canada and the United
States. His paintings grace the walls in homes across North America.
