We are a non-profit volunteer-based organization dedicated to preserving local history. We acquire, restore, and operate historic machinery and vehicles. The Industrial Heritage Center, located at the Old Arena, is a public display of such artifacts as well as a workshop to keep them in running order. We also operate the Alberni Pacific Railway, a six mile railway line that takes passengers from the historic, E&N Train Station to McLeans Mill National Historic Site.

New Seats for Passenger Coaches

Scott McCormick works for the City of Victoria and came across some excellent bus seats from retired buses which we can use as replacements for our coaches. These are interchangeable with those of ours currently in poor condition and are a welcome addition in our effort for improvement.

 

In addition, Scott took time on his day off to remove them and assist with loading.

 

A heart felt THANK YOU to Scott and the E&N Division of the CHRA  for the seats and your time to assist herewith.

Bill Walker,

APR Committee
