Updated May 20 – Update on opening date
Like others, we are adjusting to the evolving world and changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the move to Phase 2 of the BC Restart program, the FVHRS Board of Directors will hold regular updates over the next few weeks to evaluate the changes and consider our own restart process. As a 100% Volunteer run society we are also very aware that the majority of our Volunteers are seniors who belong to the highest risk group for COVID-19.
Our discussions are focused on what safety changes are needed to meet two very important criteria:
What will provide a safe environment for our Volunteers
What will provide a safe environment for our Visitors.
The 2020 season start date remains fluid and dependent on a detailed review of how new protocols can be successfully created to address issues such as social distancing and meeting various COVID-19 health department mitigation suggestions and requirements.
We expect to determine whether a season start date is possible in the next few weeks.
When our season does start
We are a volunteer group; we operate the Interurban on weekends only (Saturday and Sunday) subject to track availability.
We DO NOT operate on STAT HOLIDAY Mondays.
Our train schedule for all Saturdays and Sundays ONLY.
Trains start boarding 10 minutes prior to departure and passengers are encouraged to be at the station at least 15 minutes before departure.
• First Train: 10:00 am
• Second Train: 11:15 am

All trains depart from the Cloverdale Station (Hwy 10 & 176A St); round trip is 55 minutes duration. The route goes from Cloverdale to Sullivan Station (64 Ave. & 152 St.) and immediately returns to Cloverdale.
