This project started with a grant from the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, with the goal to digitize the hours of raw footage taken from our Coffee Clubs.  This project is now exhibited on the Virtual Museum of Canada; the largest digital source of stories and experiences shared by Canada’s museums and heritage organizations

Tough Railroaders, Rough Railroad

Welcome to the Revelstoke Railway Museum's Community Memories exhibit. We invite you to pull up a seat and listen to a story or two. Join us in Business Car #4 where our retired railway storytellers gather together to reminisce.

 

A Railroaders' Life on the CP Line

These stories speak to the survival of the Canadian Pacific Railway, communities, families, individuals and ultimately of the nation. History tells us of the when and where of events. Here you have an opportunity to hear the story from the railroaders who lived it and one story leads to another...

The retired railroaders who participated in our oral history events look back on their lives - the good and bad - with a willingness to share. Although unpredictable and challenging, a life on the railroad appears to foster a resilient spirit.
