VIDEO: Heavy haulers move massive historic train station house


A heavy haul team successfully moved a massive historic train station house to a new location in Hope, B.C.

On Thursday, February 15, the trucking team at B.C.-based Nickel Bros. moved the Hope Station House on a short journey through the town of Hope to its new location at 919 Water Avenue in the downtown area, where it will be used as a hub for tourism and the community.

The Vancouver Sun reports that the station house is 2,567 square feet.

The Hope Station House was built in 1916 by the Great Northern Railway and was connected to the internment of Japanese Canadians during World War II.

It was scheduled for demolition in 2021 but was saved by the Tashme Historical Society (THS), who helped organize the building move with help from Nickel Bros.
