The Spiral Tunnels, British Columbia, Canada.

Canadian Pacific built the Spiral Tunnels which was opened for rail traffic in 1908 to reduce the grade of the track bed at Big Hill near Kicking Horse Pass in the Canadian Rockies. More than 25 trains pass through the Spiral Tunnels daily. It was declared a National Historic site in 1971.
