Throwback Thursday - Fire Season


A couple of water connections are visible on the end of tank car BCOL 991963.

Anyone who watches the evening news is aware that fire season is getting longer, hotter, and more destructive with the passage of time and the change of weather patterns.  Railways, especially the Western lines, often retain specialized fire equipment for the protection of bridges and other infrastructure.  An example of such a piece of rolling stock is "Fire Protection Car" BCOL 991963, photographed in the British Columbia Railway yard at Lillooet on August 21, 1997.
