Participating in #HISTORICPLACESDAYS

The Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum is home to many locomotives, rolling stock and heritage railway buildings. Most are open to visitors to go into and explore. Many of our pieces were used in rail lines that pass through or are connected to Central BC. These include; the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, Canadian National Railway, Pacific Great Eastern Railway and BC Rail.
Our collection also contains a large amount of forestry equipment which was used in both logging and processing lumber in local operations.

Fun Facts

We are located at the intersection of two historically significant railways, the Grand Trunk Pacific (GTP) and the Pacific Great Eastern (PGE).

The Museum grew from the efforts of six local residents who undertook the restoration of a wooden 1903 Russell railway snowplow, which belonged to Northwood Pulp and Timber Ltd and formerly the PGE.

In 1988 we acquired and moved the former CNR station from Penny, B.C. some 100 km. to the CBCRFM.
