Early morning meet at Mackin. Train No 38, the "OV" symbol on the last few miles from Prince George to Williams Lake BC. Appears that they made a substantial pickup of copper concentrate, loaded in covered gondolas at Gibraltar. The crew will change off at Williams Lake and the train will continue on over two more subdivisions and terminate in North Vancouver. I was on the north bound "VO" from Williams Lake to Prince George and will return later that evening on the OV and perhaps have a meet here again the next early morning. On the left is Springfield Ranch and beyond that is the Fraser River.
