Train station pieces together past


Many people have used Qualicum Beach’s train station over the past 100 years, and now is your chance to share your memories.

Some people have worked or volunteered at the train station, others have caught the train or even had their wedding pictures taken there.

On Jan. 7 the Qualicum Beach Museum will host their first meeting of the year starting at 2 p.m. in the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.  Mary Ashley,  chair  of  the Island Corridor Foundation Board, will be guest speaking about the history of the train station. Ashley will facilitate a discussion of attendees memories of the train station. This will be a great time to bring forward your memories.

In the summer the Qualicum Beach museum and the Town of Qualicum Beach will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Qualicum Beach train station.

If you have photographs you want to share, please bring those as well. This is a great opportunity to build a fuller story of one of the oldest buildings in town as the train station has played an important role in our local history.
