Slugging it out in the Quesnel rail yard
August 22, 2010 started in Quesnel, BC where I caught up with CN remote locomotives 7045, 7267 with slug unit 260 working the former BC Rail yard under a smoke fill sky. The haze was caused by forest fire burning in the Burns Lake region of the province some 3 - 4 hours drive away. It would have been nice to see BC Rail CRS-20 alco's working but those unit's have since been parted out or scraped. It was different seeing the engineer on the ground with a belt pack around his waist, not something I see in Prince Rupert.
