Early morning at Cotwood, working a Geometry Car from Williams Lake to Prince George. The 763 is all shiny and new, having been on the property only a month or two.Note the white flags, denoting that we were operating as a "Work Extra". Most likely we had taken the siding here for a meet with the southbound passenger train. With our work authority we could back out of the siding and test the main track northward from the south switch. Cotwood was a short 600 foot long siding, rarely used although it did come in handy for meeting the Budd Car.
