Flyback Fridays - Roy Crowston 2014 - Memories of a Conductor

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This week we feature a short excerpt from Roy Crowston's presentation "Memories of a Conductor" at Tea & Tales in 2014. He gave some insight on what types of jobs there were on the railway and what the conductor does and he talks about accidents, snowstorms and rock slides.  Watch it here.
