July 25, 2008, RMR "Fraser Discovery" exiting west portal of Seton tunnel on BC Rail Squamish sub, train 569 waiting in Seton siding.
Nice picture Doug. So you guys bring the Fraser Discovery all the way to Whistler?
On the BCR side there are two crews assigned, alternating trips Prince George to Whistler and return, PrGeo to Quesnel, next day Quesnel to Whistler, and then return to PrGeo with a stopover in quesnel, every third trip we layover in Whistler (Monday) and then start the return trip Tuesday. The Whistler Explorer has two crews as well, I beleive the do 4 days on 3 days off. On the CN side Prince George - Jasper is operated of the freight pool, different crew every trip. Doug
Yep, those guys on the Whistler Mountaineer are 4 on 3 off, alternating on Thursdays. I had the pleasure of being called off the spareboard for an extra run on the Whistler Mountaineer before the start of the season.
