Information/Write-up

In 1980, Dave became involved with the Kettle Valley Rail Heritage Society, an Okanagan group who were trying to preserve a section of the Kettle Valley Railway between Penticton and Kelowna in British Columbia, Canada. The group was to use Dave's Kettle Valley Line song as their marching hymn. Dave released his third album, Railway Memories to assist the cause. Though the rails were eventually lost, Dave's song has lived on and become synonymous with the railway. In 1984, Dave retired from the music business and turned his full attention to his engineering career and family.
