Happy National train day!

I’m celebrating the occasion by throwing it back… to 11 hours ago, when the 2nd trip of the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society’s Connaught Car for the 2022 season passed through Surrey’s Sullivan neighbourhood.

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.
