Automobiles, Trains, & Chainsaws: Exploring Northern BC's History
Prince George is a city surrounded by forest, rivers and lakes so you can easily imagine how difficult it was settlers to manoeuvre the terrain, survive the winters and work in the hot summers.
After a quick hike at the neighbouring Cottonwood Island Park I popped into the Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum to grab a cool drink. Little did I know that the museum was much more fascinating than this city girl had previously thought.
Explore the interior of old trains, first class dinning cars, railway snow plows, ticket stations, old cars, collection of some of the oldest phones, chainsaws, as well as restored workers' living quarters and much more.
You can even rent the interior of one dinning car to host a child's birthday party or a nostalgic evening with friends.
