Review of BC Rail Cab Ride From Sea to Sky DVD

 4.2 of 5 (10)
Step back to the late 1990s and climb aboard one of BC Rail'sbrutish 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 Lilooet. You ll see the line from the crew'svantage points and witness the challenge of operating trains over this awesome stretch of railroad.

Venerable Budd cars, the icons of BC Rail'spassenger operation, are exquisitely highlighted as they work up the line. The last Alco powered RS-18 is captured as it switches cars 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
