Film Screening of “The Last Stop: Canada’s Lost Locomotive”
November 9 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Department of History and Sociology presents a special screening of the documentary, The Last Stop: Canada’s Lost Locomotive followed by a Q&A with the producers.
In 1947, a dangerous shipping incident saw an entire train assembly sink to the depths of Slocan Lake. 75 years later, a diver and his team set out to locate and extract this historical steam locomotive, aided by one of the wreck’s living survivors, a 99-year-old brakeman who was on the train that fateful day.
Battling the elements in one of Canada’s deepest lakes, with depths of up to 1,000 ft, the grueling expedition tests even the hardiest members of the team. But as the search goes on, the team stumbles upon a more intimate discovery surrounding the townsfolk who call these remote mountains in British Columbia home.
