“Wonderful Heritage Displays and Friendly Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

The park has a great selection of Heritage displays, my favorite is the Brightbill house (1937 house done in the 40's style inside). The staff is very friendly and helpful. When you walk in you feel very welcome. The giftshop is a great place to pick up a gift for yourself or someone else, I found all sorts of different gifts, there is something for everyone there.

“If you like trains, this is the place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

A large site with vintage locomotives, beautifully restored passenger coaches and some junky things. There is a new roundhouse and conference centre which is huge. The Royal Hudson steam locomotive is in there. Nice gift shop in a vintage station. About an hour out of Vancouver on a beautiful scenic highway. (Just south of Whistler resort). Even if you don't like train there is ome interesting historical stuff for everyone.
