The community centre is proud to also house Engine 374. Engine 374 was the first passenger train to enter Vancouver on May 23, 1887. It sat lonely and deteriorating in Kitsilano Park for many years until train lovers rescued and restored it in time for Expo 86. After a major fundraising campaign by the Vancouver Central Lion’s Club it found its new home in the glass pavilion attached to the Roundhouse, where it is a designated heritage monument.
