Review of British Columbia Railway BC Rail DVD

Chester Kamuda traveled to British Columbia on business. Naturally, he brought his Hi8 video camera along to explore the railroad scene. He taped the British Columbia Railway from North Vancouver to Lilloet. He captured yard action at N. Vancouver and then followed a freight along Howe inlet at Porteau and Britannia Beach. He also filmed along Lake Seton and Nairn Falls. At Lilloet, he watched and rode the night switcher and caught the RDC's down from Prince George. He also rode the Squamish Steam Train and visited the museum at Squamish. To cap off his adventure, he rode the automated Vancouver Sky Train. One hour and thirty six minutes, maps and significant narration.
