KVR - Ruth Station Entrance

  

Preserved by the Kettle Valley Steam Heritage Society, Prairie Valley Station located in Summerland BC, is the only section of the Kettle Valley Railway that offers a historical look and feel of rail travel as it used to be. A 1912 locomotive called the 3716 or a 1924 Shay powers the train, with two passenger coaches and three open-air cars. Along the way you will travel through the Prairie Valley, cross the Trout Creek Trestle Bridge (built in 1913) and pass Giant Head Mountain. On special occasions you can choose to experience an old fashion train robbery or pick from other theme rides.
