Must Read Book

In our document archive, we have some maps and schedules from the Interurban line in the 1950’s. You can thank Henry Ewert for that information. While you're at it, I suggest that you pick up a copy of “The Story of the B.C. Electric Railway Company” from your local library (the book is out of print.) This book has to be the definitive guide on the history of the line from its beginning to the 1980’s. There is even an introduction by Jimmy Pattison.

I just picked up a copy from my local Langley library, and it’s well worth the read (even if all you’re reading are the pictures.)
