SEA TO SKY

Metal and Glass

Acquired from the West Coast Railway Heritage Park, components for this piece come from the railway that runs between North Vancouver and Squamish, British Columbia, dubbed the Sea-to-Sky. These tracks were crossed by the Royal Hudson 2860 steam locomotive, which ran excursion services from 1974 to 1999. Weighing approximately 550 kg, the table is finished with a singular gold spike, as was the ceremonial custom with the completion of a significant rail line. Thirty hidden bolts allow it be dismantled and reassembled. 

 Sea-to-Sky railway line, spikes and plates (c. 1970s), Woodwards Building beams (c. 1903), oak (c.1940), glass - 11’x’5’x29” - 1200 lbs $25,000
