Big Valley was all abuzz on June 4 with the arrival of Alberta country music singer Gord Bamford here in our village. Mr. Bamford and crew spent the afternoon filming part of a new music video at our own Big Valley Railway Station. Filming began with the arrival of Saturday’s tourist train and took place on the station platform and the train while the tourists visited our village.
