Early morning, train No 32 the "PV" is ready to depart Prince George BC on the BC Rail Prince George subdivision. Two units on the headend and most likely two units cut-in as mid-train remote control units. Generally this train was heavy and mostly through traffic of lumber, pulp&paper as well as refined oil products destined to North Vancouver and points beyond.

  1. Yes, BC Rail had Locotrol in the early 1970′s, not sure exactly when it first was used on BC Rail. The original was Locotrol I on the MLW units, then with the GE Dash 8′s was Locotrol II and later the newer version DPU.

  2. BC Rail used remotes as far back as the 70′s?
