Route Name - Kicking Horse Pass 2.0

Version - 2.0, Mid 2003

Description - MLT's first offering was Kicking Horse Pass 1, released about 6-8 months after MSTS, and was regarded as one of the best payware routes. Version 2 adds about 40 miles to the east end of the route, and improved upon what few things needed to be touched up, mostly with newer tree and ground textures. Better trainsets also are included thanks to a licence with CP to use logos and names.

KHP as it is known is the Canadaian Pacific Railroads crossing of the Rocky Mountains, and does so in a most unusual way, by having trains go through not one, but two loops in a area known as the Spiral Tunnels. The tunnels helped make the deadly original 4% grade a more easier to traverse,less than 2% grade. The scenery on the route is equally as impressive as the route itself. KHP is often referred to in true life has one of the most scenic routes in the railroad world.
