The Stanley Park Railway has always been popular with locals and tourists alike. The 20 gauge, 2km track winds through the forest over ground cleared by Typhoon Freda, the most devastating storm in Vancouver history which blew through in 1962. The railway’s collection of old locomotives is a locally-built replica of Canadian Pacific Railway Engine #374, famous for pulling Canada’s first transcontinental passenger train into Vancouver in the late 1880s.
Passengers can get a close-up look at a vintage engine and a quick photo before boarding for the 15-minute ride.
Masks are required for all passengers 3 & up to board the train and must be worn for the duration of the ride. There are plexiglas dividers between the benches and they are sanitizing the trains before and after daily operations. The standard physical distancing protocols are in place for all visitors while on site.
On June 30th, summer operations will come into effect, with the train running Wednesdays to Sundays until Labour Day.
