The train is back! We have been working tirelessly with Industrial Engine, Alder Steel, and Burrard Inlet Rail to refurbish the train for all our enthusiastic train-loving guests.
Thanks to everyone’s hard work and tireless efforts, we are happy to announce this locomotive will be chugging back to life for all our guests to enjoy on July 2nd, 2018. Brian Mason, President of Burrard Inlet Rail says: “We are pleased to respond to the Zoo’s request to upgrade the track structure and ensure safety at the highest level. I’m impressed with the Zoo’s effort to improve the entire facility and I look forward to seeing the train in action, creating new memories while bringing back a cherished part of the complete Zoo experience.”
