Construction Has Begun on the Long Awaited Display Pavilion!

Crane Inserting Pilings for Timbers

Planning for the Display Pavilion began in 2008, and with the assistance of several community minded organizations, the official groundbreaking for the Pavilion took place November 5, 2014, with the estimated date for completion being summer 2015. The Pavilion will be 265 feet long by 40 feet across, and will have 76 support timbers. Once completed, the Pavilion will house six to ten of the museum’s rail cars and coaches currently at risk of deterioration from the elements, as well as provide enhanced accessibility for the public. The structure plays an integral role in protecting and preserving the rich industrial heritage of Prince George and surrounding areas. This project has been funded by several local and regionally based companies and organizations and supported by the City of Prince George and the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George. Below is a list of those who have made this possible.

  • Scouten and Associates Engineering Ltd.
  • Conifex Timber Inc.
  • GeoNorth Engineering Ltd.
  • Norcan Construction Inc.
  • Ruskin Construction Ltd.
  • PeroxyChem Canada
  • Rotary Club of Prince George
