A yearly event around the theme of railways hosted by the Vancouver Island Garden Railway Club, The Oceanside Model Railroaders, and the E&N Division of the Canadian Railway Historical Association. Around four hundred people attended this year and enjoyed the many special exhibits on the grounds.
The museum forge was open for viewing, though the fire was not lit due to the dry conditions lately. Part of the workspace has temporarily been converted into a wood carving area for making handles and scabbards. In the theme of this event the forge also featured a display of railway-related tools and a display case containing knives forged from railway track steel.
