BCR 711 leading unit on train No32 the PV symbol ready for a sunny morning early departure. I was the head end brakeman on this train. Little did I know at the time of this photo that in less than ten months this unit would have a tragic rockslide encounter on the Squamish sub, plunging into Seton Lake. The  Locomotive Engineer barely survived the accident, sadly the Headend brakeman was never found or recovered.

  1. So tragic.
    I’m surprised Stompin’ Tom never wrote a song about it.
