The Last Spike

The Last Spike

After many delays, the last spike was driven into CP’s track in Georgetown, Manitoba.

Few were on hand to witness the auspicious occasion. Citing budget cuts, CP Rail General Manager Bill Horne Van said, “All I can say is that the work has been adequately done in every way.” He then boarded the work train’s caboose and they pulled out of town, leaving the ballasting and other finishing work to local crews.
