Sorry, your browser doesn't support Java(tm). A CPR sleeping car built in 1920, the Venosta, was restored in the fall of 1987, with assistance from the West Coast Railway Association.

The major part of the Venosta is used to display historic railway pictures and artifacts. The Venosta also features two sleeping compartments and a ladies powder room with accessories from the 1920's.

The railway display at the front of the museum exhibits 2 four-man handcars and a boomcar, which were originally used by track crews for transportation and for delivering supplies for maintaining the railway right-of-ways.

An additional four-main handcar is used for the World Championship Handcar Races, which originated in Port Moody in 1979. The handcar races are held annually during Port Moody's "Golden Spike Days" celebration on the July long weekend.

The Venosta is available for parties and meetings.
Special events are often held in the Venosta
including murder mysteries and teas
