Pacific Wilderness

Pacific Wilderness Railway was short-lived seasonal tourist train that operated begining June 2000 with diesel powered trains from downtown Victoria on Vancouver Island 20 miles over the E&N (under Rail America) to Malahat (pop. 0).
Headed by Ross Rowland, the proposed steam engines never arrived. It failed and abruptly ended operations in July 2001.
