This clip features edited excerpts from Rails to Romance, a promotional film/travelogue produced for the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in 1945-47 by the BC Government Travel Bureau.
The Union Steamship vessel Lady Alexandra leaves Vancouver harbour and stops at Bowen Island, a popular holiday destination. After the film pauses at Bowen to outline the resort and recreational facilities there, the steamer continues its trip to the PGE’s southern terminus at Squamish. Passengers and freight are transferred from the Lady Alexandra to the waiting PGE train.
