Preservation history

The West Coast Railway Association is a heritage railway and museum located on Government Road in Squamish, British Columbia near Vancouver, whose purpose is to collect, preserve and restore railway cars and artifacts and operate a licensed railway.

To this end, the Association acquired the Royal Hudson #2860 steam locomotive from the cash strapped BC Rail and in 2006 restored it to operation. The Association has the largest collection of railway rolling stock and artifacts in Canada outside of the Canadian Railway Museum.
