20th July 2012 – The Kettle Valley Railway

Every Thursday to Monday, from Easter to late October, the Kettle Valley Railway in Summerland, BC runs steam trains along the last remaining section of train track on the Kettle Valley Railway.

Originally, the railway served the south British Columbia towns and cities.  Now, only 10 miles of track remains, and for 90 minutes you can be transported to the era of steam.

It is well worth making the effort to take this journey.  This really is a family friendly activity, and you get to see some of the most beautiful scenery that southern BC has to offer.  AND, you be keeping a piece of history running and alive in the Okanagan.  Maybe you will get to witness a train robbery!!!!
