The Last Spike

"Cragellachie Station opened in 1863 - 22 years before the last spike was driven in 1875 at Craigellachie in British Colombia to complete the Canadian Pacific Railway across Canada.


Named after the birthplace of George Stephen, Chairman of CPR - it prompts me to wonder if he saw the opening of the Strathspey Railway in 1863"!
