I welcome you to contribute to this site. Those who live or have lived in northern BC know the beauty of the area and the solidity the people who live there. When I was very young and lived in Prince Rupert. I used to watch the steam engines switching in the yard. I saw the steam engines leave and the diesel locomotives take over. I missed the steam engine. Railway was a huge part of my life and I was lucky to be able to travel with my father on the head end until 1972 and I enjoy those memories so much.
Then railway passenger service began to dwindle away in BC. That fantastic way to travel was departing. The time of the steam engine, the dining cars with silverware and cloth napkins, going over tressels hundreds of feet high and a quarter of a miles long, were departing for memories. Yes, the Via-Skeena run between Jasper and Prince Rupert does exist today. However, those of us who remember how it was, also know it is just not the same.
