On June 22, more than 50 years after she made her last run, the restored interurban car 1225 shuttled its first passengers along the original line between Cloverdale and Sullivan Station.
The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society (FVHRS) inaugurated operations of the Heritage Rail Demonstration Project and officially opened the replica Cloverdale Station.
Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s (KPU) horticulture students made sure the station looked picture perfect for its debut.
Under the leadership of KPU instructor Betty Cunnin, the University’s School of Horticulture Landscape Design students created a number of hanging baskets, which are currently on display at the station. The students are also developing a landscaping plan for the heritage station – a plan that is set to be complete in December 2013.
As part of KPU’s horticulture class in landscape design, students practice the basic principles of landscape design, including plant composition, creative problem solving, and functional and design uses of landscape materials. They also prepare working drawings, such as concept and planting plans for clients.
