We were overwhelmed when we received this letter from Zoli in Port Moody and had to put it up here for everyone else. Thanks for letting us know.
I saw your magazine at Vancouver airport. I was there to pick up my mom, and while I waited I saw a copy had been left by someone on the seat next to me, so I picked it up and read through it. My wife and I rode part of the railway near Kelowna—can’t remember the name now, but it’s the section on the east side of the lake that passes over a series of trestles. We’ve been talking about going back and riding that stretch and other stretches ever since. So when I read through your magazine, I realized we now have a single resource to help us plan our trip. We’d been putting it off partly because we didn’t know of an easy single resource with all the info we need before this. So thanks for putting the magazine together! I think it’ll be really helpful for us.

If you have anything to share or contribute such as information, video links etc, contact us at and we will review and notify you if it is added to the site.
