CN's fleet of Draper taper Dash8s were regulars around Chetwynd after the demise of the BCOL 3900 fleet. The reason for this was to serve the Dawson Creek Subdivision, which under BC Rail was four axle only territory.  The fuel levels were closely regulated to keep weight per axle at the acceptable level. Infrastructure improvements have since allowed larger units to operate on the line.
