    • The Qualicum Beach Station 100th Anniversary (1914-2014) was a huge success. The August 23rd community planned event was well organized and attended. A special thank you, to our E&N Division member Rick Barnum for his many dedicated hours and suggestions to make the railway portion of the event run smoothly. Our Division provided railway displays and our many volunteers handled well over two hundred speeder rides with safety and enthusiasm. Thank you all for making this an event for the history books!

     To all our Train Guys:
