Downtown Historic Railway

Local nameDowntown Historic Railway
LocationVancouver, Canada

The Vancouver Downtown Historic Railway was a heritage electric railway line that operated from 1998 to 2011 between Granville Island and Olympic Village Station in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It operated only on weekends and holidays, usually from May to mid-October, and was aimed primarily at tourists. Two restored interurban trams were used on the line, which used a former freight railway right-of-way.

The line was owned by the City of Vancouver. The cars were operated by volunteers from the Transit Museum Society. The car shown was privately owned. In January 2016, 1207 was donated and moved to the Fraser Valley Historical Railway in Cloverdale, BC.
