Save the Trestles on the E&N's Port Alberni Subdivision

This was taken above Cameron Lake at Mile Post 14.6 of the Port Sub; on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. For us to witness trains riding these rails and passengers experiencing views like these once again, we must restore the wooden trestles back to operating conditions.

Message from Site Administrator -

Many of you don't understand the importance of preserving these vital wooden trestles along the 39.0 mile right-of-way between Parksville and Port Alberni. These vital structures are the future of this line and require immediate attention for future rail operations. Many want a tourist train across this line, but currently can only operate as far as Cameron Lake on the east side and McLean Mill NHS on the west, due to structural conditions of these trestles. The Port Alberni Subdivision has been said to have more unimagined scenery then the WP&YR in Alaska. For those who have rode the WP&YR it is very scenic and to compare to the Port Sub is not possible without a train to traverse this stretch of railway. We must stabilize these structures now before it is too late and additional costs are involved to do so. For more information about the subdivision, project, trestles, and our goals, you're in the right place! I urge you all to sign the petition below to help support our goals and help others realize the Port Alberni Subdivision's full potential.
 
Thank you for your time, we hope to see your signature!
 
Sincerely,
