NEW: The Wildflower Meadow

What’s new at the railway? Come and check out our new Wildflower Meadow, designed in partnership with the Honeybee Centre. This amazing exhibit is eco-friendly and reflective of a simpler time. Click Here to Learn More.

“Wildflower meadows were once common in the UK, but have mostly been lost due to agricultural intensification since the 1940’s. Although these habitats have been lost forever, existing grassland can be managed to improve its species diversity and new wildflower areas, which have much in common with traditional meadows, can be created.”

BCER Interurban 1225 crosses a trestle over the Serpentine River in Cloverdale. Originally constructed in 1910, the line was used by interurban cars such as this one would, making the 3 hour journey between Vancouver and Chilliwack. Service stopped in 1950 and is currently used by a freight railway. Over the last few years, the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society (FVHRS) has been running a restored interurban along the line to let visitors experience another time.

The photo is actually a composite of two separate photos. The black and white image was taken by David Davies in 1965. I'm using the image for personal/educational use which is permitted. I've overlaid my image taken from today to show how very little the backdrop has changed on 50 years!

Fraser Valley Heritage Rail director Allen Aubert reminds me to include the FVHR bee project in my next column. His promo worked! It's included! The society has wildflowers, bee hives and interurbans zipping around the car barn and heritage station in Cloverdale, BC. #travelinspiration #travelbc #travellingtimes #beesandtrains #SurreyBC #beesee #cloverdale #railguys #railsociety #railvolunteers #beepromo #surreyheritagerailway #fraservalleyheritagerailway #fraservalleyheritagerailwaysociety ...

Interurban 1225. Rumour has it these things had reached speeds of up to 80 miles an hour back in the day. These days, they are legally limited to 15. Let's hope that changes one day!

A morning at the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway. This rail car was originally built in 1912 and now restored and running. What I found fascinating was that it is powered by and electric generator. Love that feeling of nostalgia. #railcar #railway #cloverdalebc #restoredcar #nostalgic #nostalgia #explorebc #travelbc #daytrips #vancouverdaytrip #beautifulbritishcolumbia #canada #fraservalleyheritagerailway ...

Rail car barn. This is where they restore the rail cars. They're currently restoring 2 rail cars. If they had rail cars in my area, I would probably give up my car and ride public transit most of the time. #carbarn #cloverdalebc #canada🇨🇦 #daytrip #travelbc #explorebc #fraservalleyheritagerailway ...

Spent a lovely morning with the volunteers at the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society last week. Nickel Bros raises the trains here to allow access to restore undercarriage parts like the motors and wheel assemblies. If you haven't paid this site a visit, make sure it's on your summer to-do list!
