Many years ago this province was thriving with railways, be it freight, passenger, mining or logging. But, times have changed and the iron horses that helped shape this province have been consumed by history. A few of these great machines have been saved from the cutting torches and the scrap dealers. This website pays tribute to the many steam locomotives of British Columbia that have been saved, and is dedicated to the people that have preserved them. Listed on this website are all locomotives from 4'8.5" standard gauge down to 15" gauge.
About the Pictures:
Most of the pictures were taken by my father and some were by me. My goal is to have at least one picture for each locomotive. Some pictures I have found on the Internet or have obtained from magazines or other sources, and where appropriate, I have included a photo credit with the photographer's name. I am hoping to eventually replace these pictures with my own photos. If you do not want your picture posted here, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will remove it immediately. For some locomotives, I have provided links to other sites where there are plenty of pictures and I bet the creators would be more than happy if you visited their sites.
About the Pages:
This is a brief summary of what you'll find on each page in this website.
I would like to have this website contain the most comprehensive information on the surviving steam locomotives of British Columbia. I need your help! Most of the information that I did my research on came from various books, pamphlets, and websites. Some of this material is older and not up-to-date. If there is any new information or I got the wrong information, please contact me and I will make the appropriate updates. Your help is much appreciated.
