Watch: Local clock maker’s best creation yet is on its way to Australia

Gastown’s steam clock is one the most photographed landmarks in the country.

And the man who built it 40 years ago is still going strong.

Ray Saunders is famous for his large creations, including the celebrated steam clock in the heart of Vancouver. It was the first of its kind in the world, built in 1977.

Since then he has created six more, like the Shaughnessy steam clock in Port Coquitlam. Others are located in Japan and the U.S.

But his latest clock is the most elaborate one yet.

It is on a ship right now, headed for the coal town of Katoomba, Australia.
