Remarks & Notes 
On what is likely their first revenue trip southward, BC Rail 4603 and sister unit are in charge of a southward freight headed toward North Vancouver, BC. Cut in about halfway back in the train is another brand new C40-8M. These 18 GE C40-8M's allowed for a 4 to 3 unit reduction on its through freights from Prince George to North Vancouver with typical train sizes building the train in 2 X 1 configuration. This new power effectively allowed the railway to retire its remaining 6 axle MLW locomotive fleet from mainline service.
