The Tri-Cities Now sent a reporter/photographer to the layout in the Port Moody town hall on October 19th, 2013.

Here's a link to some fine photos by Chung Chow, in one of the newspaper's galleries... and no prizes for guessing that Canadian Pacific liveries featured prominently among the trains running, and in these photos.

New website news!

Aug

On the 1st of September, vancouvertraingang.com will move to vancouvertraingang.ca - still under construction. Arrangements will be made to forward vancouvertraingang.com to the new domain so that external links will continue to work.

We hope there'll be no complications at changeover time, and that the event proceeds in an orderly fashion, but please be patient if there are glitches, as several different people and organizations are involved.
