BOARD THE HISTORIC ENGINE 374

On Sunday, May 21, a free festival centered around Engine 374 will be open to the community. On May 23, 1887, this little engine that could pulled the first transcontinental train into Vancouver and sealed the deal for British Columbia joining Canada, completing a nation that spans from coast to coast. Now, 130 years later, the public are invited to re-live the moment alongside the famous engine at its resting home in Yaletown’s Roundhouse Turntable Plaza. Brought to you by the West Coast Railway Association and sponsored by the Yaletown Business Improvement Association.

Come celebrate with:

  • Free birthday cake
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Brass Band
  • Free Yaletown-themed Canada 150 t-shirts and frisbees (while supplies last!)
  • Robert J Bedford

    Climbed on it in KITS many years ago

  • Jon Zae

    What a horrible waste of property which is just benefiting the rich.

    That should be turned into a fitness center with Fitness machines and treadmills the only place we have now is Steve Nash
