Cariboo Prospector BC Rail passenger train photos, from a ride on June 18, 2002. From North Vancouver to Lillooet return. Photos by Gordon Hall. The end of service is to be the fall of 2002, unlikely to be revived. These are classic RDC Budd railcars built in the 50's, worn out and in need of a rebuild.
