Port Alberni Historical Railway

The museum in the old Canadian Pacific Railway station is a historical must see.  The old logging railway line that you can ride an ex logging steam locomotive to the old McLean steam mill gives you a train experience that every rail buff should visit on vacation.  With the pictures in books and museums of the old logging railways why not ride into the woods with the whistle and clacking of a real train to make special memories for years to come.
