It's time to spray the weeds
Author: loleta

On May 13, CN ran a weed sprayer out of North Vancouver up to Prince George (and beyond?) on the old BC Rail. This was an opportunity to see something operating north of Squamish other than the seasonal Rocky Mountaineer tourist train.
1. Train 927 northbound on the Squamish Sub. near Porteau.
2. Britannia.
3. The weed sprayer car itself, approaching McGuire.

5. Crossing Rutherford Creek at Tisdall.
6. At Nairn Falls.

7. After stopping to pick up lunch in Pemberton, the sprayer is on the move again near Mt. Currie.
8. Near Creekside.
9. Passing Gates Lake near Birken. The train will stop in Lillooet for the night.
