Remarks & Notes 
Route of The Cariboo locomotive evolution! Here are four generations of locomotive technology represented by MLW/GE at Squamish Yard. BCRail hosted an open house celebration for the introduction of 18 new General Electric C40-8's with delivery starting in May of 1990. Additionally, the railroad would begin to replace its 4 axle locomotive fleet with a completely rebuilt unit designated a CRS20-Cat. These rebuilt units based on RS10 & RS18 platforms were overhauled in house at Squamish Shops and featured Caterpillar power plants. Between the delivery of the 18 six axle GE C40-8's for mainline service and the rebuilding of the backbone of the four axle road switcher fleet the railroad's long relationship of being loyal to MLW/Alco power would come to an end.
