The Onderdonk Section of the Canadian Pacific Railway is the section of the transcontinental railway built by Andrew Onderdonk under contract from the Canadian government. He built from Port Moody near Vancouver to Savona near Kamloops. After completing that section, under contract with the CPR, he built the section from Savona to Craigellachie in Eagle Pass where his crews met the CPR crews working from the east. This later section I refer to as the CPR Section.
