Video: a quick clip of the SkyTrain zooming through Expo 86

Another item in our 25th anniversary flashback series! Here’s a quick clip of SkyTrain zooming through the Expo 86 grounds, courtesy of the City of Vancouver Archives!

It’s a quick look at the SkyTrain during its launch year, plus about a minute of footage of the Expo grounds, including the monorail :)

This clip is an excerpt from “Expo Views” by Yaletown Productions, a video production firm whose footage was recently acquired by the City of Vancouver Archives. The item number is accession 2010-035, and the Archives currently hopes to have the full footage available online sometime in 2011.
