New Lower Mainland railway theme website!


Congratulations to the Burnaby Central Railway on launching their new website at recently. If you want to see and ride miniature trains in the Vancouver area, this is THE place to be!

We hope that the new site attracts many new visitors to what is a fine Burnaby attraction, a hidden gem among the many tourist sites of the Lower Mainland. Well done, Burnaby Central Railway and the British Columbia Society of Model Engineers!
