The Emmy award-winning public television series, Great Scenic Railway Journeys, is headed to Port Alberni to profile one of B.C.’s historic rail sites.

The Alberni Pacific Railway has caught the attention of the show’s producers, with its rich history, colourful past, and  current operations.  Filming will take place Aug. 12–14.

The railway was selected to be in the batch of programming that will hit the PBS airwaves in the spring of 2012, McLean Mill manager Neil Malbon noted in a press release.

“We are very excited to be able to include this historic location in our next special,” show creator and producer Robert Van Camp said.

“We have filmed several railways in Canada and the Alberni Pacific Railway will be a great addition to our programming.”
