A sunny July morning, northbound stopped at Hixon BC and had time for a photo or two. I can't recall if we were meeting the  southbound Budd car or waiting for a relief crew. We were either running as a late "VC" symbol or early "VO". At the time it was time table scheduled trains with train orders. Note the white flags and lights on the 704, denotes we were an "extra" with train orders to "run extra".

  1. Great photo, those must have been the days on the BC Rail!

  2. “Run Extra” orders were OK as long as they were followed by the words ” with right over…..”. Great photo!
