Probus Walkers Take to the B C Electric Railway
On Friday 20 October five of the Brentwood Bay Probus walking group met for a stroll on a portion of the ballast bed of the B C Electric Railway that once linked the capital with Deep Cove.
We parked just north of the Red Barn Market at the junction of Wallace Drive and West Saanich Road. It was good walking weather --- overcast skies and a temperature of 16 degrees --- as we set off south, intersecting assorted driveways and Hartland and Prospect Lake Roads before counter-marching at the traffic light at Interurban Road and returning to our starting point. The grade was easy and the time elapsed scarcely over an hour.  Nevertheless, some engineers elected to top up their boilers with coffee at the Red Barn station.  Perhaps you’d like to join us on another of these shuttles?
