Trains and Steam Locomotives in BC, Canada
Expo 86 Steam Fair, Royal Hudson and other trains
A personal view by Gregory Melle
|I have long enjoyed train travel, photography and employment|
I took my first long range train trip across Canada with my sister and parents in 1967.
We stayed in Pullman cars with fold-down beds, we sat in the dome car and played bingo.
It was a great trip and I was hooked.|
In the early seventies I worked on the CNR railway in Dome Creek, Kitwanga and Boston Bar. I even spent a few weeks in Endako, Lillooet and Chetwynd. (Some of this story is shown at my Dome Creek and Kitwanga pages).
In 1986 Vancouver hosted a transportation themed World's Fair. One of the highlights was the Steam Expo at the end of May 1986. It was a unique occasion for picture taking.
The Royal Hudson is owned by the BC government. It did excursion trips from North Vancouver to Squamish for many years.
In later years, I travelled by train in Europe, Asia, USA and Australia.
Major highlights are found in my Year 2000 trip pages.
I travelled by train throughout Japan and then from Shanghai all the way to Moscow and then across Western Europe.|
I have also taken excursion steam train trips in several countries.
