The Kettle Valley Steam Railway offers a unique 2 hour journey on one of British Columbia's few remaining fully operational steam railways. Passengers enjoy a tour along a preserved ten-kilometre section of the original Kettle Valley Railway constructed between 1910 and 1915. The locomotive, a 1924 Shay steam engine, pulls two 1950's passenger coaches, the "Canyon View" and the "Faulder", and three open air cars,the "Winslow," the "McCulloch," and the "Kettle Kar." Friendly, informative guides bring the history of the railway alive as the train rolls along hillsides overlooking beautiful Okanagan orchards and vineyards. The Trout Creek Bridge, which spans the canyon at 238 feet above the water, was the highest steel girder bridge built on the original KVR line and can be viewed from the southern terminus of the railway, Canyon View Siding. As of 2005 the train will again travel on to the bridge for a panoramic view of the canyon, and lake beyond. As well, you can listen and sing along to happy Banjo music performed by Felix Possak
