The resignation was unexpected and the railway’s board is now reviewing its options moving forward.

In the interim, Popadynetz’ duties will fall to assistant manager Sara Bonderud and administration manager Julie Clark, who will take over this season’s operations.

Popadynetz was recently named the tourism attractions leader of the year in the Tourism Kamloops Bold Hospitality Awards.

In his work with the railway, he was responsible for running events such as the Ghost Train, Spirit of Christmas, Trick or Treat Train, Harvest High Tea and the upcoming annual fireworks special on Canada Day.
