Note. 1: In the routes via PGER to either Clinton or Lilooet and thence to either Ashcroft or Cisco bridge to connect with either CPR or CNR the new miles to build the cost of construction distance traffic is hauled, and gradient being similar, these routes are indicated simply as via PGER.
Note. 2: The distance given in statement of initial cost is taken from Spirit River. In statement of maximum cost the line from Berwyn to junction of these lines at Rocky Mountain canyon has been added.
Note. 3: The Pine Pass Route. The only advantage that this route has over the Peace Pass route is it would be shorterfor traffic originating south of the Peace river.
