In the early 1900s, Canada Copper owned a mine on Copper Mountain, just south of Princeton. With an increased demand for copper during the First World War, Canada Copper approached the KVR in April of 1917 requesting that a rail line be constructed from Princeton to Copper Mountain. The KVR would haul raw ore from Copper Mountain Mine to a concentrator plant that was to be built between the mine and Princeton, then to the smelter at Trail, B.C. By November 1917, McCulloch had completed the survey work and by the spring of the next year, construction began.
