Alberni Pacific Railway asks drivers to exercise caution near railroad tracks

Trains are back on tracks as students from BCIT's conductor training course are in Port Alberni for training Nov. 13–25, 2015.

Trains will be operating on the Alberni Pacific Railway tracks between Argyle Street and McLean Mill National Historic Site in Port Alberni as the British Columbia Institute of Technology brings its conductor training program back to the city.

From Nov. 13–25, 2015, trains will be operating anytime between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Drivers are asked to pay special attention at rail crossings. “Please obey the signals, particularly if the trainees are on the round after dark,” APR spokesperson David Hooper said. “Students will sometimes use flares and lanterns for signalling in the dark. Please exercise caution when you see them.”

Walkers and all-terrain vehicle drivers should also use caution near the railroad tracks, especially on the Roger Street Trestle. Training may also take place on the Barclay Hotel siding on Roger Street between Stamp Avenue and Sixth Avenue.
