Engine 374

Yaletown’s history as an industrial district and the end of the Canadian-Pacific Railway is hard to imagine these days, but you can find one of the train line’s most historic steam locomotives at the 374 Engine Pavilion. See for yourself the engine that pulled the first passenger train in 1887, transporting 150 passengers to Vancouver all the way from the country’s east coast.
