Slocan 1897-1905/1905-1928 (157.7 x 27.5 x 6.7 feet) The Slocan was built at Rosebery to provide a connecting service with trains on the CPR's trackage between Nakusp on the Arrow Lakes and Rosebery on Slocan Lake with the branch line built between the southern end of Slocan Lake and the railway between Nelson and Robson. This route bypassed the Narrows of the Columbia River and ensured year round service between Nelson, Rossland and Trail and the Crowsnest Route and the mainline at Revelstoke. The Slocan was rebuilt with a new hull in 1905.
