    The Kettle Valley Steam Railway is unique in the Okanagan Valley– a place where you can step back in time and experience rail travel as it was almost one hundred years ago. The Kettle Valley Railway built during 1910-1915 once stretched from Midway to Hope. Just ten miles (16-kilometre) of this historic rail line remain as a living legacy for you to enjoy. Beautiful vistas unfold as you wind your way through Prairie Valley – a quilted patchwork of lush orchards, vineyards and fields of green. Rock cuts and natural landscapes provide another kind of beauty as the train takes you onto the Trout Creek Trestle Bridge 238 ft (73 metres) above the canyon floor. Powered by a restored 1912 locomotive called the 3716.
