The Winter Valley Story

The story of the Winter Valley Regional Railway is a story of ordinary people determined to overcome the odds.

When the CNR applied for abandonment of 120 miles of prairie branchline a handful of local farmers and businessmen faced the ultimate loss of a vital rail service. A series of town meetings soon brought together all the ingredients necessary to create the WVRR…. and the rest is history.

Today a fleet of modern diesels move a wide variety of merchandise out to the waiting world via connections with CN and BC Rail and increasing numbers of tourists enjoy popular summer excursions powered by the vintage CPR 8450.
