This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to leave a legacy that sparks a new generation of Canadian train lovers and history buffs! The campaign highlight will be the unveiling of the BCER 1304 as she takes her inaugural post-restoration run down the track in September 2017. We welcome everyone to join in the celebration and become a part of history in the making as we mark this historical event during Canada’s 150th year.
Our goal is raise $100,000 in the community towards this final stage of restoration of the Connaught. Five years of volunteer work and over a million dollars has been invested to bring the Connaught back to operational condition, and we are so excited to be on the last stage of our journey.
An official tax receipt will be provided and a special complimentary commemorative ticket to ride BCER 1304, the Connaught, will be offered for every donation.
Every donor will have an opportunity to attend the official launch ceremony in September 2017, and will be recognized on a legacy plaque displayed at the Cloverdale station and online on the FVHRS Canada 150th webpage.
