152nd Street and 64th Ave, Surrey, B.C.
In 2001 the Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society (FVHRS) was formed to acquire, restore and operate the remaining BCER Interurban cars. The original Fraser Valley rail line still exists in the valley from New Westminster as far East as Chilliwack.
The site includes a Car Barn, a replica of the Sullivan Station and streetcars BCER 1304 and 1225 which is being restored.
We are moving from Sullivan Station to Cloverdale in 2012. While we are packing up at Sullivan, and construction is underway in Cloverdale, we will not be holding Open House events.
Once we are moved in to Cloverdale we plan on a few special events, however we do not, at this time, plan on any regular public access to the new Cloverdale car barn. You are more than welcome to ride on the restored BCER 1225 on Saturdays and Sundays in the Summer.
Schedules and event times will be posted in the Spring when we know our opening date. Exact dates depend on construction and weather.

Three miles east of Hope accessible on Othello Road from the Coquihalla Highway, or from the town of Hope. See link below for map.
You can walk through the picturesque Othello-Quintette Tunnels in the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park. The tunnels which line the Coquihalla River, were designed by Andrew McCullough and were built between 1911 and 1918. They were created in order to complete the Kettle Valley Railway and one of the most expensive pieces of railway ever built. There are four tunnels in all, which are carved from the solid granite of the 300 ft. Coquihalla Gorge. These tunnels are one of Hope's most popular attractions due to the beautiful setting and natural backdrop.
