Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we will be running reduced services. Why? Simple...everyone needs to maintain social distancing AND we insist that our visitors wear face masks while on-site..

Our concession will also be open; however at this time we will only be selling pre-packaged snack foods, such as ice cream, as well as ride tokens, face masks and souvenirs(at a great price). Unfortunately, at this time we are still unable to accept birthday party bookings.

The Garden Railway Committee has been working hard during the off season and we are optimistic our Garden Railway may be able to open for public viewing later this season.

Each train, once passengers have detrained, will be sanitized before the next group of passengers are boarded. Please be patient with us if it takes longer than normal for you to get a ride!

The Burnaby Central Railway is owned and operated by the BC Society of Model Engineers. Our volunteers donate their time to build, maintain, and operate it.

Funds collected from rides and donations are returned to our railway. Any donations from you would be greatly appreciated and amounts over $20.00 will receive a tax deductible receipt.

Thank you for your consideration.
