This service has apparently been running since 2002 over 35 miles of former BC Rail track, but does anyone have any technical information?

They(TU-108 and 109) were built by Jim Busby on a Ford/Fairmont Tamper frame, BC Rail bought them to replace the Budd Cars. They run from Seton to Lillooet and return daily(twice daily on Friday) with service to D'arcy on request.
