Here's a photo I took on August 26, 1976, FORTY-SIX YEARS AGO, when I made a one-week trip to British Columbia and Alberta.

As seen from the northbound Caribou Dayliner, here's the train running along the shore of Seton Lake on the last few miles into Lillooet. The railroad serves a very isolated area between D'Arcy (MP 123.7) and Lillooet (MP 157.6) along Anderson and Seton Lakes and, even though the Caribou Dayliner has been discontinued, I believe this 34 mile stretch of track continues to have passenger service for the local residents of the hamlets of D'Arcy, Ponderosa, McGillivray Falls, Marne, Curries, Seton Portage, South Shalalth and Shalalth. In recent years I think they've been using some sort of bus-on-train-wheels. Years ago, a derailment caused a BCOL freight unit to go into the lake and a team of divers later fished it out using inflatable balloons--primarily to see if they could do it.

If you want to live in a place that's off-the-beaten-path, the region along these twin lakes would be a good place. Highway access is very limited.
