Black Sleeping Car Porters and the Fight for Rights
While I was doing some research into the experiences of black labour on the railways in Canada, I came across The Road Taken, a National Film Board production from 1969, that I thought would be of interest to many of you.
The Kamloops Heritage Railway Society is seeking individuals who are passionate

Kamloops Heritage Railway Invites You To Experience A Part Of Our History
At Kamloops Heritage Railway, we are committed to preserving the history of the rail industry in British Columbia. We do this by offering educational tours of our Heritage Park and hosting events for the general public to attend.
We are grateful for the volunteers that make this possible.
Please note: We are no longer running the trains on the tracks due to lack of track accessibility. Please come explore our Railway Park and Exhibits.
Get up close with our steam locomotive 2141 and see the variety of rolling stock we own.
Fantastic place if you're into trains especially steam. The back of house tour was fantastic. Got a great walk though the carriages and a great up close view of the 2141 Spirit of Kamloops loco.
A worthwhile stop while in Kamloops.
One of the must see and do things when in Kamloops. The train inside out takes you to a time 100 years ago. Purely driven by volunteers this is a piece of history that everyone needs to get a taste of when in Kamloops.
Best backshop tour ever. $10 per person. The volunteer will spend almost a hour to show and tell the story and history about trains.
Experience The History
Kamloops Heritage Railway host regular tours and events to engage with the community.
