Hey gang!
 
I look forward to discussing all about the local railroads & shortlines.    
 
Just a reminder that there will be some crossovers from other boards (CP, CN, BNSF, Vancouver Island) so if you can't find it here, please look there!
 
**   Pictures!     I can't stress enough how much pictures make this board!   Please share and share often!

Welcome to the British Columbia Board.  KVR & Pyronova have hit the nail on the head as to what the discussions will cover.  And I would also like to stress the importance of pictures.
 
Enjoy this interesting area of railroading

Hi all,
 
It took a bit of digging to find the relevant board, but I found it!
 
As a Newbie I will probably have more questions than answers.
 
Of course that could change over time.

Good to see some new activity in here--this board has been pretty dead for a while.  Perhaps we can inject some new life into it.  I'll try to do my part--I'm heading off on a two-week camping trip in the Interior and Rockies in a few days and maybe will have some new photos to post when I get home.

Kind of off topic but relevant and interesting:

Most of the action is on Facebook. there is a page called "Rails BC" that is very active. They go on rail fanning exhibitions quite often or share when something unusual is coming down the line.
