Administrative history

The Vancouver, Westminster and Yukon Railway was a firm created by businessman John Hendry in 1901 and shortly thereafter received a federal charter to lay track from New Westminster to Vancouver. The company began laying track in 1903, but the company's ambitions to build northwards were thwarted by an adverse political and economic climate, obstruction by the CPR and BC Electric Railway. Hendry sold most of the assets associated with the firm in the four years up to 1915, when the company's charter to build north of Burrard Inlet expired. The company's assets were later involved in rounds of railway consolidation that occurred in the second decade of the 20th century.
