Railway Days in Pictures: Day Three

Saturday was a busy day for many railway enthusiasts: there was a bus trip south of town to find a 105-year-old logging railway trestle bridge in the forest near Trout Lake, kids activities at the Railway Museum, stuff on Mount Revelstoke and — if you were bargain-hunting — even a Sidewalk Sale on First Street West, a Magic Lantern Show at the Nickelodeon Museum and a concert at Grizzly Plaza.

Here are a few pictures from the day’s events:

One of the highlights of this year's Railway Days celebration was a journey south across the water to the site of a long-abandoned logging railway trestle bridge in the forest near Trout Lake. The trestle was built in 1906 and abandoned after a forest fire wiped out the timber in the area. David F. Rooney photo
