Our last public opening day for the 2020 operating season is earlier than usual this year and will be
27 September 2020


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..

At this time our concession will be closed, so we will not be offering food or beverages for sale; we will only sell ride tokens and face masks. In addition, we are unable to accept birthday party bookings this year, and the Garden Railway is also closed to the public.

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.
