Dates of existence


The Midway & Vernon Railroad was a "paper railway" (a railway that never progressed beyond the proposal stage) that actually started construction. It was hoped that the Midway & Vernon railway would connect Midway (the westernmost station of the CPR-owned Columbia & Western Railway) with Vernon. However, due to funding issues, construction on this railway was stopped. However, portions of the completed railway grade were included in the Kettle Valley Railway when the section between Penticton and Midway was completed.
