On the main track at Mackin, VO symbol freight is waiting on a meet with southbound train. Notice the white flags /white lights indicating "run extra" Williams Lake to Prince George BC. Early spring morning with difficult light for photos. Anyhow, this was perhaps my favorite freight job out of Williams Lake with an early morning departure, a good snooze in Prince George and then a late evening trip back to Williams Lake. Quite often northbound we had work at Williams Lake, setout and pickup, perhaps setout some empty covered gondolas at Gibraltar for copper ore loading. Quesnel we would setout numerous cars and make a large pickup. On the way home from Prince George, the train was easy handling with a lot of TOFC empty traffic, a quick setout and pickup at Quesnel and sometimes making a quick stop picking up loads at Gibraltar.

Special thanks to Joe Bishop for helping with this image.
