A Visit to the West Coast Railway Heritage Park - What You Will See


Mac Norris Station

This station is a modern building in every way except that it has been built from the original plans for the Squamish Station of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway. It was designed in 1915, but the railway had its first bankruptcy that year, and it was never built. It had always been decided to build a station in the park. The plans came to light in 1996 and it was built here in 2000. The layout you see here is as it would have been for the era with the caretakers’ living quarters upstairs for himself and his family.

Mac Norris was a wonderful supporter for the WCRA and was the CEO for PGE/BC Rail for many years - the station was named in his honour by Rocky Mountaineer where Mac served as a Director for many years - his story is in the lobby.

This building also houses the Education Room that is available to book for meetings and special occasions.
