Cariboo Western Railway

The Cariboo Western Railway is based on the British Columbia Railway with some change of history. The railway runs from Vancouver to Ashcroft. We interchange with BCR at Pemberton Junction, Canadian National and Canadian Pacific at Ashcroft and Canadian National at Vancouver. We are now operating the Railway using the Occupancy Control System If we can get 2 dispatchers. OCS is a Canadian version of Track Warrants. We use prototypical paperwork and procedures.
