Train Ride

About the Ride

Ride into the past on Surrey’s Heritage Railway every weekend between May 6, 2023 to October 1, 2023.

The train is a B.C. Electric interurban car rehabilitated to a state of full operation by our volunteers. The train departs our Cloverdale Station and travels through the farmlands to Sullivan Station and returns. Crossing over Highway 10 is an exciting experience. Lights flash, the whistle blows, and traffic comes to a halt. Passengers and vehicle drivers wave at each other in greeting.

The train crosses the Serpentine River into pristine Fraser Valley countryside. We often see hawks, bald eagles and families of coyotes. Each train has a Passenger Attendant who shares rail history and stories with our passengers.

All trains depart Cloverdale Station at Hwy 10 and 176A Street in Cloverdale. The route is: to Sullivan Station at 64 Avenue and 152 Street, and return. The passengers are able see the exact replica of the Sullivan Station but do not get off the train. Rides are approximately 55 minutes long.

Our flagship car is Interurban 1225. We do have special days when we operate Interurban 1304, the Royal Connaught car. Look for these days on our calendar. Also, there is a good chance that we will be introducing Interurban 1231 to our fleet this year, a sister to 1225. We’ll be announcing a special day when this happens. We are anticipating a very exciting season.

Train Rides are approximately 55 minutes long. Visitors can take in the Sullivan Excursion Train Ride and Discovery Centre Tour on the same day, or if timing is limited, come back and visit us again!
