Bert Coughlin

The Railroad Balladeer

Song writer and railroad historian arrived at the station for his final boarding call on Dec 3rd in Barrie, ON. He was in his 78th year. A former “character” of Three Valley Lake Chateau and a familiar face in Revelstoke, the “Train Man” will be dearly remembered by all who were blessed to have known him.

A celebration of Bert’s life will take place in January in ON. Donations may be made to Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, ON or Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.

Rest easy at the great station on the other side, dear friend. The Music may have been sweet, but you were always the Song.
