Work to extend the Howe Sound &
Northern line commenced in 1914. Progress was
sporadic as European funding for construction
dried up in the First World War. The line became
a political football when allegations surfaced that
the contractors had been skimming money.
Unloved and unwanted, the provincial
government had to take over the line in 1918 as it
had guaranteed most of the bonds that had
financed construction up to that time.
The provincial government tried to
unload the money losing line in the 1920s, but no
one was interested – even the federal government
could not be persuaded dump it on CN – for a
measly selling price of $17 million. The line
staggered on running from Squamish to Quesnel,
in the interior of the province, with hand me down
equipment, but lots of pride.
In 1949, Premier Byron Johnson
announced that his government would complete
the PGE. In 1952 the rails reached Prince George
ending the old saying that PGE stood for “Prince
George Eventually”. In 1956, the old North
Vancouver-Whytecliff line was reopened and
extended to Squamish. The PGE modernized its
operations with modern diesel locomotives for its
freight trains and snappy Rail Diesel Cars for its
passenger operations.The completion of the Vancouver-Prince George line
didn’t end the expansion. The line was pushed up to Dawson Creek
and Fort St John in
BC’s Peace River
Country in 1958
and on to Fort
Nelson in 1971.

50MARS – AVRIL 2012RAIL CANADIEN • 547Remembering B. C. Rail
By Mark Forseille
Back in the mid 1980’s, the British Columbia
Railway had just changed its name to BC Rail. They were
in the midst of repainting their locomotive fleet into the
first new Red, White and Blue paint scheme. These
happened to be the official colors of the Social Credit
Government in power at the time.
The GE’s weren’t yet on the horizon, and the
MLW’s still ruled the rails along with the SD40-2’s. The
GF6C Electric’s had recently been introduced on the
Electrified Tumbler Ridge Subdivision to bring Northeast
Coal to Tacheeda, where it was handed over to CN diesel
power to finish the trip to the port at Prince Rupert, BC.
This is the point where I start this recollection of
railfanning BC Rail. I recall that most summers starting
in 1988, I’d head out from the lower mainland area of
Vancouver towards Williams Lake for about a week.
In 1992, I decided to take the next step and
venture further north up to Prince George. It was too bad
that by this time all of the Big Alco’s were all off the roster.
I was aiming to get as many M420’s as possible as most
were in the Prince George area.
In the summer of 1998, a group of us decided to
head up even further to Chetwynd seeking the new B36-
7’s. By 2000, we went the furthest up the line making it to
Fort St. John, BC. Our main goal of this trip was to get
photos of the GF6C’s in their last few months of
operation before they were removed from service.
BC Rail was a friendly road. They always
accommodated us whenever we stopped to visit their
diesel shops in both Squamish and Prince George. In the
later years, one of the Prince George Diesel Shop
Foreman even remembered my name from the previous
visit the year earlier. Looking back now, I’m glad to have
all those trips along the BCR.
BC Rail has some of the most magnificent
scenery along its right of way. There are four main
Subdivisions on the BCR between North Vancouver to
The Squamish Sub which runs from North
Vancouver to Lillooet is considered the most dangerous
subdivision on the line. Numerous derailments due to
rockslides have occurred on this subdivision over the
years. Trains in the most dangerous sections were
preceded by a Speeder car and later by Hi-Rail trucks to
ensure a safe passage. On February 29, 1980 a rockslide
blocked the track causing two engines to plunge into
Seton Lake with crew fatalities. This slide happened after
the speeder passed by and before the train arrived in that
spot just minutes later. Ironically, this slide happened only 100 feet from the northeast end of the lake.
The Lillooet Sub runs from Lillooet to Williams
Lake. At Lillooet the track starts in the Fraser Canyon
and rising 2, 716 feet in the next 34.6 miles to Kelly Lake
and the Caribou Region of BC.
The Prince George Sub runs from Williams Lake
to Prince George. The northward progress of the Pacific
Great Eastern halted for many years the Cottonwood
River, north of Quesnel. The million dollar cost of the
bridge was deemed too much for a railway that literally
ran from nowhere to nowhere. After Quesnel, its
towards the City of Prince George into the Northern BC
area of the Province. The majority rail traffic from the
Caribou Region is derived from the lumber industry.
The Chetwynd Sub runs from Prince George to
Chetwynd. Most of the southbound loads traveling this
subdivison are from other BCR branch lines or from the
Far North region of BC. Besides lumber, southbound
trains pick up about 20 sulphur loads at Pinsul located 15
miles south of Chetwynd.
The Chetwynd Sub has three branch lines. The
Stuart Sub branches off at Odell (MP 495.4) to Fort St
James. This becomes the Takla Sub from Fort St James
and continues north as far as Minaret (the current end of
the line). Mostly lumber products are shipped from this
section including raw logs.
The Tumbler Sub branches off at Wakely (MP
537.2) and heads to Tumbler Ridge, site of what was once
called the North East Coal Project.
At Kennedy (MP 567.3), the Mackenzie Sub
branches off to the town of the same name of which the
sub is named where several sawmills lumber are located.
Once at Chetwynd, the mainline continues north
to Fort St. John on the Fort St. John Sub.
Past Chetwynd, there are more petroleum loads
coming south as well as more lumber products and some
sulphur from Taylor near Fort St John.
The last sub is the Fort Nelson Sub from Fort St.
John to Fort Nelson where the line ends at MP 978.8.
More lumber products and grain are shipped from this
area heading south.
The Dawson Creek Sub branches from
Chetwynd to Dawson Creek towards the Alberta Border.
There’s some plywood, wafer board lumber products and
grain coming from this area.
There is one more little known Sub. It’s the Port
Sub from Pratt in Cloverdale, BC to The Roberts Bank
Coal Port. This is the only sub that the CN does not
control today and is still owned and operated by BC Rail. All photos by the author unless credited otherwise

Access to the Port Sub is off CN’s Yale Sub at Hydro (MP
101.7) and onto the CN Rawlinson Sub for 2.1 miles. The
line junctions with CP’s Page Sub (CP MP 16.4/SRY MP
21.92) at Livingstone which is SRY Rail Link/CP joint
track to Pratt (CP MP 23.9/SRY MP 14.23). Trains to
Pratt and onto the Port Sub are governed by BC Rail from
Livingstone west to the Port. At Pratt the SRY branches
off to their rails and the tracks continue another 23 miles on the Port Sub to Roberts Bank.
The southbound trains on the BCR consisted
mainly with loaded cars. Lumber products are the main
source of traffic. While mainly empty cars returned
northward on the BC Rail, one of their “hotshot” trains at
one time carried some Labatt’s Beer trailers loaded with
fresh supplies for the towns and cities located up the line! Photo 1: SD40-2 756 and C-425 812 are ready to

To complement Mark Forseilles article on the
modern day British Columbia Railway and Doug Smiths
overview of the BCR and its predecessors, this Photo
Gallery features a retrospective mostly of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway from 1950 to the early nineteen-
seventies. The images from the Ron Ritchie collection,
which were taken by Ron and the late Omer Lavallee, give
a great visual insight to the PGE when it was in fact a very
local railway between the west coast port of Squamish,
B.C. and the town of Quesnel. Some wags said that the
initials PGE stood for Prince George Eventually. The
PGE did in fact reach Prince George in 1952 and finally
completed its southern entry into North Vancouver in
Ironic is the fact that while the CNR could not be
persuaded to purchase the PGE for the sum of $17 million
in the 1920s, CN’s long term lease of BC Rail in 2004 cost
$1 billion.
This Photo Gallery is dedicated to former PGE,
BCR and BC Rail chief dispatcher Paul D. Roy. Paul and
his family are avid supporters of the West Coast Railway
Heritage Park in Squamish where many items of PGE
history can be seen.Stan’s Photo Gallery

Les photos présentéesici se veulent un
complément aux articles de Mark Forseille et de Doug
Smith sur les chemins de fer de la Colombie-Britannique,
ailleurs dans ce numéro. Elles nous montrent un petit
chemin de fer régional, le Pacific Great Eastern, entre
1950 et le début des annéessoixante-dix. Ces trèsbelles
images, prises en majorité par Ron Ritchie et feu Omer
Lavallée, nous font voir ce chemin de fer qui reliait le port
de Squamish, sur la côte ouest, avec la ville de Quesnel à
l’intérieur. Les initiales PGE voulaient dire, selon
certains farceurs, « Prince Georges Éventuellement ». Ce
n’est qu’en 1952 que le chemin de fer se rendit jusquà
Prince Georges. Le réseau fut enfin complété à North
Vancouver en 1956.
Il est un peu ironique de constater que le
Canadien National refusa en 1920 d’acheter le PGE pour
17 M$ alors quil acheta ce dernier, plus tard intégré au
réseau BC Rail, lors de l’acquisition de BC Rail en 2004.
Cette chronique est dédie à Paul D. Roy, qui fut
régulateur en chef au PGE, puis au BCR et enfin à BC
Rail. Maintenant retraité, il est l’un des piliers du musée
West Coast Railway Heritage Park à Squamish, C.-B., où
l’on peut voir de nombreux artefacts du passé du PGE.Les photos de Stan

Version française : Michel LortieLillooet, B.C. was the first division point
on the Pacific Great Eastern Railway
north of either Squamish or, after 1956,
North Vancouver. Immediately north of
the yard at Lillooet, the PGE main line
crosses the Fraser River on a
combination box span-trestle bridge.
In 1950, doubleheading of eight-
coupled steam locomotives over this
bridge was prohibited. Therefore the
second engine in any train powered
with more than one locomotive,
required the second engine to be
placed back in the train. In this view
from 1950, CLC 2-8-2 No. 58 is
assembling a northbound freight. In
the background, the more modern 2-
8-2 No. 160 is the engine back in the
train. Ronald S. Ritchie.
La ville de Lillooet, C.-B., possédait la plus importante gare de triage du Pacific Great Eastern, au nord de Squamish. C’est
également à cet endroit que le PGE traversait la rivière Fraser sur un pont à chevalet. Ce dernier ne pouvait supporter le poids de
deux locomotives de type 2-8-2 attelées en tandem. C’est pourquoi, lorsqu’on avait besoin de deux locomotives, la deuxième était
placée à l’arrière du train. Sur cette photo, prise à Lillooet en 1950, la 2-8-2 58 est en tête d’un train au départ vers le Nord avec la 2-
8-2 160 quon voit plus loin à l’arrière. Ronald S. Ritchie.

the Canadian Locomotive Company
and served her owner until 1955. Seen
at Lillooet in 1950, the 58 is marshalling
a freight train soon to be northbound
for the division point town of Williams
Lake. Note the octagonal water tower
and the brakeman on the CNR outside

sur cette photo d’époque le château d’eau octogonal ainsi que le serre-frein debout sur le toit du wagon couvert. Ronald S. Ritchie.
No. 160 simmers at Lillooet in 1950 prior
to acting as an early version of
distributed power. Later in the diesel era,
the PGE and later BCR would make
extensive use of both manned and robot
pusher diesel locomotives, but on this
day, Mikado 160 is back in the train on a
Williams Lake northbound freight. The
2-8-2 160 was built by late in the steam
era by CLC in 1945 and was only retired
in 1961. Ronald S. Ritchie.
La 2-8-2 no 160, de conception plus moderne, a été construite par CLC en 1945 et a été en service jusqu’en 1961. Elle attend à
Lillooet d’être utilisée pour amener un train de fret vers William Lake; elle sera placée comme deuxième locomotive en milieu de
train afin de ne pas surcharger le pont sur la rivière Fraser au nord de Lillooet. Cette façon de faire est reprise aujourd’hui avec des
locomotives diesel contrôlées à distance par la locomotive de tête. Ronald S. Ritchie.
