This clip is another excerpt from Rails to Romance, a promotional film/travelogue produced for the Pacific Great Eastern Railway in 1945-47 by the BC Government Travel Bureau.
This section of the film depicts the Lillooet and southern Cariboo regions. The town of Lillooet is highlighted, along with gold-mining activity in the area. An auxiliary gas car (a gasoline-fueled railway engine) is shown on the line to nearby Shalalth. Profiling the PGE’s route from Lillooet to Clinton, the narration extols the rugged beauty of the passing scenery. The excerpt concludes with a visit to a typical Cariboo dude ranch, where “gay holidayers enjoy a morning canter”.
