The Scene A 70 year-old second-floor club on Dunsmuir Street, the Railway's rich, dark wood-grained interior captures a laid-back 1930s feel. A highly detailed train set runs on a track suspended above the room and thick, sturdy wooden tables echo another era while making way for the latest musicians to come on up. Even the stage has the classic structure of Vaudevillian days, though performers now tend to be new, up-and-coming musical acts. With an unique layout, there are three sections spaced around the bar, but the first area you encounter upon entering is the largest and also the space that houses the stage. The clientele is made up of regular members and local music fans - generally a sedate crowd looking to "chill" the night away.
Listen to the Band Butch Murphy runs a rockabilly jam on Saturdays, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Acts during the week run the gamut from female songwriters Veda Hille and Carolyn Mark to pop acts Brundlefly and Cinderpop.
