Surrey’s Heritage Rail hosted a special celebration of Surrey’s first responders on Canada Day weekend.
Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society presented a certificate of appreciation to Cloverdale’s Fire Hall No. 8 at the inaugural celebration.
Meanwhile, community members were able to check out the special all-day event on Saturday (June 29), which included live music and volunteers dressed in period costumes, as well a display of vintage emergency response vehicles.
Of course, they were also able to see all of what Cloverdale Station has to offer year-round, such as the Frank Horne Heritage Discover Centre — with its historical information on B.C.’s interurban rail, self-propelled velocipede and speeder — and go for rides on a fully restored interurban rail car.
Cloverdale Station is located at 17630 56 Ave., and is opened on weekends from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., May through September. For more information, including train times, go to fvhrs.org.
