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!

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 ...

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!

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 ...
