Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society welcomes fourth Interurban car

Early last Thursday morning (Nov. 9), the Fraser Valley Heritage Rail Society (FVHRS) welcomed a fourth Interurban car to their barn.

BCER 1231 was relocated from Vancouver’s Downtown Heritage Railway to the Cloverdale station, and arrived at 2:30 a.m. by truck.

The car is a “sister car” to BCER 1225, which is also in the care of FVHRS. Both cars were built in 1913, and both operated on the Marpole-Steveston and Burnaby Lake lines.

For more information on FVHRS, visit fvhrs.org.
