During the late nineteenth century, the Kettle Valley Railway was used for the transportation of minerals and fruit.

Roughly 25 years later, as a result of public demand, the train opened up a passenger line.

The first passengers of the KVR crossed Summerland to go to Penticton.

Has it been awhile since you took a ride in the KVR ‘s vintage coach? To continue to promote the fascinating history of the Kettle Valley Railroad, which draws numerous tourists every year, it is important that the train be kept in great working condition.

Help support the KVR’s effort by purchasing a raffle ticket!

Raffle tickets are on sale at the RBC branch in Summerland.

The draw will be made on Oct. 31. If you are interested in learning more about the Kettle Valley please call us at the Summerland museum at 250-494-9395.
