Locomotive Maintenance
The locomotives are operational artifacts and are occasionally pulled from duty for service and maintenance related to their long-term preservation.

The BC Forest Discovery Centre works hard to plan locomotive maintenance during the off-season, but sometimes a scheduled locomotive must be taken out of service without time for advance public notice.
