Brookemere, BC was one of the stopping
and re-watering junctions along the Kettle Valley
Railway for steam engines hauling
silver and copper. Also used to carry Okanagan
fruit and passengers, she is a large
part of British Columbia's history.
The Kettle Valley Railway was built in
1910-1915 for servicing the mining industry
in Southwestern BC.
Now no longer in operation, the route
is used in the summer months for biking and hiking.
I've visited Brookemere before in the summer months,
and now sleepily covered in a blanket of snow,
she is a regal lady indeed.
