Another Cellphone shot

After yarding our train at Squamish, we parked the power out front of the station for the northbound crew.

We had 3 Dash 8's, the two little blue ones(B39-8's 3907 and 3902), and a big red white and blue one(C40-8M 4617).
I see they got an electronic bell up front between the number boards.
Why is there 4 ditch lights, the right lower ditch light seems to be off.
BC Rail had a set of ditch lights, and a set of rock or corner lights, they shine around curves. Because of the tight curves, mountainous terrain, and slide prone areas that BC Rail operated through, being able to see around curves is a good thing.

You can sure notice the difference when you have a CN unit leading without the extra set of lights.
