In my opinion and others, this is a truly rare image. In all the the BCR photos I have seen in print and websites I have not seen any thing similar with L&HR units leading on BC Rail in their original paint. Unfortunately it was a dull drab day and Kodak Instamatic was not up to the task.

L&HR 25 leading train #48 a few miles south of Chetwynd, perhaps around mile 649.5. L&HR 25 & 26 were bought by BC Rail and eventually repainted in "two tone green" and renumbered 631 & 632. I never did see L&HR 26 in it's original colors. It was a cloudy afternoon and another one of those Kodak Instamatic moments some 46 years ago.
