The Kettle Valley Steam Railway

Showcasing a unique part of the Okanagan's history.

The Kettle Valley Steam Railwayoperates as a non-profit heritage railway along the only preserved 10-kilometre section of remaining track from Prairie Valley Station to Canyon View Siding, in Summerland, BC. Original construction of the Kettle Valley Railway spanned 1910 to 1915. The last freight haul on the KVR was in 1989, after which CP Rail obtained permission to abandon and remove the final section of rails.

The Kettle Valley Steam Railway is operated by The Kettle Valley Railway Society, a non-profit, charitable organization. This organization strives to be self-sufficient through revenues, individual and corporate memberships, donations and financial assistance from our municipal, regional, provincial and federal governments in order to continue the restoration and operation of this important national historic site.

Riders experience the romance of a bygone era as our fully restored authentic steam locomotive No. 3716 pulls vintage rail cars through picturesque Prairie Valley dotted with orchards, vineyards and fields of green, then onto Trout Creek Trestle Bridge, offering a stunning view of Okanagan Lake and the canyon below
