Topic: The Flood of ’48 presented by Tom Price. This deals with the Fraser River flood of the lower mainland of B.C. in 1948 and the attendant break of the C.P.R. main line at Hatzic. The personal challenges of the situation and the eventual success of the restoration are documented.

Tom is a retired CPR railroader with almost 40 years service. Starting at age 16 on an extra gang he worked himself through the production gang and track maintenance ranks to achieve a Roadmaster’s position in various places of B.C. and Alberta. His last posting was Roadmaster at Banff, Alberta for 12 years before moving to the head office as Supervisor Maintenance of Way Work Methods for the CPR system. Tom enjoys continued contract work with engineering firms and railways.

This meeting will be held via Zoom.
