Glacier, British Columbia
|Location||Glacier National Park of Canada, Glacier, British Columbia|
|Line(s)||Canadian Pacific Railway|
Glacier is a railway whistlestop and locality near the summit of the Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park in British Columbia, Canada. Just east of the still-existing Canadian Pacific Railway station building at Glacier (and just inside the western portal of the Connaught Tunnel completed in 1916) is the current summit of the railway. There are a hotel, restaurant and service station nearby at the summit of the Trans Canada highway, just east of Glacier. There are no permanent residents.
The building, now disused as a passenger terminal, is a log building built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1916. The Glacier station provides facilities for the once double-tracked Connaught Tunnel. (The line through the Connaught tunnel consisted of double track as-built but was converted to single track in 1959.) This station is no longer used as a passenger station.
The building was designated a national heritage railway station in 1992.
