Heritage CN Rail Station

In 1983 the CNR Station in Fort Langley was to be demolished to make way for the double tracking. After negotiations with the CN, the Township and the Province of BC, the Langley Heritage Society moved the building to the corner of Mavis and Glover and refurbished it.  The Station was built and designed as a class 3 building by the Great Northern Rail in 1915, taken over by the Canadian National Railroad in 1918 and remained in use until the late 1970’s.  It is managed and run by Langley Heritage Society volunteers.The baggage room has had the FLAG (Fort Langley Artists Group) as tenants for 20 years.  The ticket office and waiting room are replicated as original and caretakers live in the Station Masters quarters. Outside the Station on the old style tracking sits a 1887 velocipede on permanent loan from the BC Agricultural Museum.  A 1930 gas speeder is rolled out on display when the site is open to the public. The 1920.s Caboose houses an excellent working model railroad . A 1947 coach not only displays the ‘collection’ of CN artifacts but also serves as an information center for Railroad History.  In 2001 the Langley Heritage Society was proud to receive a prestigious B.C. Heritage Society Award of Honour for the preservation and conservation of the CN site.
The site is open from May 24th to October 12(Thanksgiving) on Thursday through Sunday (and holidays) from 12noon to 4pm.   It is manned by Langley Heritage Society “Railroaders” with a student assisting the volunteers in the summer months. It is a great visit!
