On the rails again in Penticton
As the Kettle Valley Steam Railway in Summerland gets ready for their 2011 season, the Kettle Valley Brakemen were warming up train enthusiasts with their songs and stories about life on the railroad.
The Brakemen performed to a packed house at the Penticton Museum Saturday, bringing to life some of the characters of early life on the rails in Canada — people like Sam Steele, Andrew McCulloch and the latest addition to their roster of subjects, Percy McPherson, with a song about how the old-time conductor once delivered a baby on his train.
The KVR Steam Railway in Summerland has a Easter Run on April 23, then begins regular operation on the May 14 weekend.
