Train #32, symbol "PV" stopped just south of the Gibraltar Mines copper concentrate load out on the BC Rail Prince George subdivision.  We had just made a pickup at Gibraltar and were waiting for the air to recover. The refined copper ore was trucked from the mine east of McLeese Lake to the rail loading facility a mile or south of Macalister siding and was destined to North Vancouver for export. I was the "headend brakeman" and once the train was on the move, we were on our way home to Williams Lake BC
