Train Thang!

The Kettle Valley Railway, engineering marvel of Andrew McCulloch stretched through southern British Columbia, Canada from Midway through the trestles and tunnels of rugged Myra Canyon.

Winding down the mountains, its trains rolled along the hills above Naramata in the Okanagan Valley and on to Penticton before climbing again, through Summerland across the Trout Creek trestle and on to Princeton, Coalmont, Coquihalla, and down into Hope.

The Seen 28 - Kettle Valley Brakemen

Jack Godwin of the Kettle Valley Brakemen


Headed by Jack Godwin, the band plays “toe tappin’ folk bluegrass” music that tells the tales of Western Canada’s steam rail history. Much of the band’s songs focus on historical aspects of railway life, including the experiences of engineers and trainmen.
