P9222691 Fall Fair

Our third "Fall Fair Run" featured two visiting steam trains that carried the main load of passengers during the two days, noon to five pm Saturday and Sunday September 21 and 22.

Fall Fair Saturday was a beautiful fall day, contrary to the forecast.

Sunday was rainy early, but cleared up nicely for mid afternoon.


 P9212618BCSME Vice-president Kent and Linda Cavaghan; Secretary Gerry Wittenberg; and Communications Manager Joe Holman of the BC Society of Model Engineers, (operators of the Burnaby Central Railway), attended the fall fair.
