BC Rail 1862 still in service

Well it's not very often to see a caboose in service due to the use of "FRED's" but every now and then one shows up in maintenance service. When CN assumed control of BC Rail I recall seeing a large number of them for sale through a CN asset sale. BC Rail 1862 was in the Smithers yard with a string of Difco dump cars Saturday Jan 16 where it was photographed.

What a great blog, and a great contribution to BC history.

I'm trying to do a bit of the same ... only it's more text, and less photos (unfortunately). If you'd care to drop in for a look, the URL is:

It's focused on BC Rail, the major issue which arose from The Legislature Raids of Dec. 28, 2003.
