Explore Surrey’s railway history at the Cloverdale Station of the B C Electric Railway line. The replica station starts your Journey Back in Time when the electric Interurban rail cars provided transportation though the Fraser Valley.

The Heritage Rail Adventure journey offers a “ride everything” time on a restored BCER Interurban, a tour though a yet-to-be-restored original BCER Interurban to see a music video on the history of the line, tour thought the working Car Barn and see Interurban cars undergoing restoration, then take a speeder ride on our own spur and complete your journey with a ride on a velocipede – you are the motor!  Just over an hour of family fun Back in Time.

The Sullivan Excursion journey takes you on a trip on a restored BCER Interurban car to the replica Sullivan Station and returns though an area of fields, rivers and streams to see what Surrey was like one-hundred years ago. The full journey takes just under one hour.

Check the website for which Adventure or Excursion is running that day.

If you are not interested in riding on the railway, visit us for the free music concerts on the station patio on special days. Depending on the day, you might hear Jazz, Blues, barbershop or Dixieland groups.

Fun Facts

The BCER Fraser Valley line opened in 1910 and ran to 1950

You could take the Interurban from downtown Vancouver to Chilliwack, over 62 miles, at the time was the longest operating electric railway in Canada.

There were four round trips a day, each way took about two and a half hours.

The BCER Interurban routes ran between Vancouver, Marpole, Steveston, Burnaby, New Westminster and the whole Fraser Valley.

The first run from Chilliwack to Vancouver each day stopped at farm stands to pick up urns of fresh milk , taking a bit extra time. This was the real Milk Run!
