A film crew from PBS rode the KVR in Summerland over the weekend to gather footage for an upcoming special. 'Celebrating North America's Greatest Steam Excursions,' will air in March of 2007 on KCTS and will include scenes from some of North America's most historic steam engines.

Some of the other 17 historic tourist steam railways that will be featured on the documentary include the Hull-Chelsea and Wakefield Steam Train in Quebec and the Alberta Prairie Railway.
