Lake City Industrial spur line?

Post by CN Sparky » Mon Aug 02, 2010 1:31 pm

I'm trying to find information on the trail that runs along the old BNSF line from Government Street (near Hwy 1/Gagliardi area) up to Lake City... in Burnaby, BC.

I understand it used to be a spur line to the Lake City industrial area... but that's about it. I'm assuming it used to run just south of Eastlake Drive through the Lake City area, because of the size of the overpass (on Gagliardi) that has more than enough room for the right-of-way there..

I think the tracks were pulled up in 2000... but I can't remember, as I've only been in this area for the last two years now.
