Founded in 1961, the West Coast Railway Association (WCRA) is a non-profit society dedicated to preserving British Columbia's railway heritage. The society operates the West Coast Railway Heritage Park located in Squamish, BC. The park is home to over 90 pieces of vintage railway equipment and is the second largest railway museum in Canada.

Notable pieces of the WCRA's collection include Royal Hudson No. 2860, and 1890's era business car "British Columbia".

The park operates several events throughout the year in which train rides are offered. Occasional excursions using WCRA equipment also travel throughout the province.

Volunteers from the WCRA also operate the Engine 374 Pavilion in Vancouver.
