About the Discovery Centre

  • In August, 2011, the City of Surrey provided FVHRS with property at 5554 176 Street, the site for a new 3-bay car barn and home for the BCER interurbans currently at the Sullivan Station car barn.
  • The site underwent a complete change with old “organics” removed and a covering of structural fill ready for the construction of the new barn. Work was delayed for a short time to remove some unexpected surprises left underground.
  • In October, 2011 approval to start construction been received from the City of Surrey. We expect the Building Permit to be issued shortly to be followed by construction and all the other activities that are needed to become the next operating railway in B.C.
  • On September 11, 2012, the final inspection was done and the Certificate for Occupancy signed – we are officially here!
