The Fraser River, in particular, was the project's vital gateway to the materials and people needed for the railroad's construction. The route continued east to Craigellachie, B.C. where it joined up with the newly built central section of the railroad.

The central section originated in Ontario and followed a route westward that paralleled the Canada - U.S. border. Initially, a more northerly route across the Prairies was proposed, but this route was rejected in favour of the southerly route that took the railway through the newly discovered Roger's Pass even though this route was more difficult and dangerous to navigate.
