This motor car was powered by a small gas engine owned by the section foreman himself. It had just been purchased last winter and was still being paid for at the time this photograph was taken. It was a big improvement over the hand pump car normally provided by the CPR and, no, he didn't have to buy the gas! The motorcar itself was owned by the Company.
