BC Rail deadline

BC Rail deadline

BC Rail C36-7s 3624 and 3607 lead two lines of various BC Rail engines. That is a very rare MLW RS18 behind 3607.
Agreed! CN is already short of Yard Power up here so they are using a BCR C40-8M (BCR 4605) with a Belt pack yard, Maybe they should have kept the RS18's? YES THEY SHOULD HAVE!!!!!
My God! This is where they ended up? Lordy! How gruesome! IMHO, 3607 in the BC Rail lightning stripe paint is more "rare" than a run-of-the-mill Cat RS18 rebuild. But thanks anyway for letting me see this.
Thanks to the BC Provincial Gov't and the CN for this view.

I initially thought this picture was taken in Prince George! But didn't recognize the trackage. Regardless,a year or so ago that same collection of power would have been in P.G. in better condition.

Keep the "B.C." in BC Rail!
The 3607 has
"Do Not Board"
"Do Not Occupy" stenciled on it.
What's wrong with it?
It preformed much better on the Lillooet w/f than it's CN successors which tend to run away on the grade out of Kelly Lake.
The 3613 (wherever it is) is the other 'lightning stripe' loco.
A beautiful yet sad photo - thank you.
Anybody wanna buy an rs18 cn is selling a bunch of the old bc rail engines on their site, if I had the money I'd jump on that and purchase some old prairie branch line....anyways, these were beautiful engines it really is a shame.
This morning a BCR Unit 4649 was on 853 Togo Sub.
