C is for Clock
If you have ever visited Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum, you know that the first thing you see as you pull up is the station clock mounted on our visitor centre.
This clock was originally from the CN station in Vancouver located near China Town and the harbor, now known as the VIA Rail station. It was transferred to our institution from The Exploration Place during the 1990s.
The clock was designed by Joseph Mayer Clock Company in Seattle for the Northern Railway. There are no known Joseph Mayer clocks east of the Washington/Idaho border making ours a rare sample. Long time volunteer, Ray Rutherford, helped acquire the funds to help bring the piece to working condition.
