Railfanning in Vancouver, BC

Post by Mike630 » Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:35 am

Hello:
I’m looking for information on good photo spots in Vancouver, BC. I’d like to get shots of the passenger traffic (VIA and Cascades long-distance trains and the West Coast Express), although any advice on freight trains would be also appreciated. I will have a car but I will stay within the inner metro area (by this I generally mean the areas served by SkyTrain and the trackless trolleys – Vancouver proper, Richmond, Burnaby & NW Surrey).

I'm also looking for advice for Vancouver BC railfaning.
I saw couple of videos on Youtube. Many videos were shot along the parks not far from WCE's Waterfront Station.

There are a couple of recent threads on this topic in the 'Canada' subforum.
