Sights from a 106-yr-old train ride

Breathtaking views of lush orchards, vineyards, and the natural landscapes of the Okanagan Region pass by as the old train clips down the tracks.

Residents and team members from Okanagan Chateau Retirement Residence in Kelowna, BC, enjoyed these spectacular views on a recent outing to Kettle Valley, where they took a trip on an antique train originally built in 1912 as a coal-burning locomotive. Since then, the engine has been converted from coal to oil, and has starred in many movies and commercials, including “The Grey Fox”, a movie about Bill Miner, and Walt Disney’s production “The Journey of Natty Gann.”
