Description
In 1890, Black Auntie, a wood burning locomotive, brought passengers to Stanley Park for a picnic. Picnickers were transported by flatcar or boxcar for the day. The locomotive pushed the flatcar so that the smoke and cinders from the locomotive would not bother passengers. The service lasted a decade until construction of the Canadian Northern Railway destroyed the site.
