In the siding at Greening, waiting on a meet. This is train No23, the VP symbol,Vancouver Peace. This was the hotshot train operating on BC Rail. The train ran seven days per week and basically had traffic for destinations all the way from Vancouver to Fort Nelson. A lot of the traffic was TOFC of various cargo including refeer units of perishable items as well as non-perishable food goods, beer and spirits, construction materials, welding gases as well as machinery. It was a time sensitive train and was given priority on the road. This train was a very competitive transportation service.

  1. No it was nothing leaking, a large sheet of plastic covering a load had come loose. We tried to put it back in place after I took this picture.

  2. Is there something leaking back there?
