“Historical Series #3: Steam Train On Bridge Over Chemainus River”

Thundering across a log bridge over the Chemainus River is Locomotive No. 4, an 80-ton Porter 2-6-2T, once the pride of the Victoria Lumber & Manufacturing Co. Ltd.’s Copper Canyon Railway System.

Chemainus was the delivery point of the first, the last, and the longest enduring rail logging operation in BC.

After the Chemainus Fire Hall was demolished in2015, the mural was recreated on aluminum composite panels and installed on the TELUS Building on Will Street.
