Step back to the late 1990s and climb aboard one of BC Rail’s brutish C40-8 diesels for a fantastic cab ride from sea level at Squamish up through the rugged coastal mountain range to the big sky country at Lillooet. You’ll see the line from the crew’s vantage point and witness the challenge of operating trains over this awesome stretch of railroad. Venerable Budd cars, the icons of BC Rail’s passenger operation, are highlighted. The last Alco powered RS-18 is seen switching at Squamish. Helper service is shown in detail as we ride an assisted freight up steep mountain grades.

Rebuilt Cat-powered diesels are seen toiling at the large yard in North Vancouver. You’ll see the school train that provides children with a unique form of transportation to and from class. Even more action is waiting to be enjoyed in this insightful look at BC Rail operations and the gorgeous British Columbia scenes that enrich the footage taken from the cab. Hop on board for the ride of your life as we travel from sea to sky on BC Rail!

    Bought this on VHS back in the day, wish I had it on DVD. Was very good and most interesting cab ride I’ve seen. Certainly a great video for anyone, was not BC Rail fan but learned a lot and gained a respect for the railroad.

    Set in the 1990’s, hop on one of BC’s C40-8 for an awesome ride thru beautiful scenery. Ride thru tge awesome Squarish up to Big Sky Lilooet. Cab ride is great. Good narration as well. A very unique film. Worth the money.

    Seeing BC from the cab is defiantly different, that’s for sure! And to top it all of, being in the cab of a cowl Dash 8 is great. Beautiful scenes, great documentation and information. Shows a very unique railroad with very unique operations! Great for any railfan.
