Are you interested in supporting the Kettle Valley Steam Railway non-profit society?

While the Kettle Valley Steam Railway is able to fund a lot of its required maintenance and upkeep from the revenue from all the great folks who come and ride with us, from time to time we face a significant single challenge in maintenance funding which we need help from our supporters in order to address. This is one of those times, as the Trout Creek Trestle Bridge requires a significant maintenance effort in order to keep it in solid operational condition.

One of the many wondrous pieces of work that made up “McCulloch’s Wonder”, the Trout Creek Trestle Bridge was completed in 1913 after being personally surveyed by Andrew McCulloch, the Chief Engineer entrusted with construction of the Kettle Valley Railway. The largest bridge on the KVR line (250′ ft high, close to 700′ long) and the third largest in North America of its type at the time it was built, this bridge joins the Myra Canyon Trestles and the Othello Tunnels as one of the icons of the marvelous engineering feats found on this historic railway.


We thank you in advance for your support and look forward to seeing you on our train.
