On Feb. 16, the old Hope railway station was moved to a new home on Water Avenue, where it will become the new info centre and museum. While such moves normally take place at night, due to the public interest, a daytime move was arranged. The building, which dates to 1916 and was previously an arts centre, narrowly avoided demolition three years ago. The Tashme Historical Society was key to ensuring it was preserved.
