Tandem Ferry Aprons for the Canadian Pacific Railway at Vancouver and Nanaimo, B.C., Canada

PRIOR to the construction of the new ferry aprons described in this paper, the terminal of the Canadian Pacific Railway on the west coast of Canada at Vancouver was linked with the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway on Vancouver Island by a barge ferry service from Vancouver to Nanaimo. Freight cars were loaded onto barges and towed by tugs across the Straits of Georgia, a distance of approximately 40 miles. P.L. Easterbrook
