I remember Trains magazine ran BC op-ed newspaper cartoons from that era
that were pretty funny.

There are lots of pulp mills in Prince George, so a good possibility this was going via PGE through North Vancouver.
The OP said it's a 1956 photo. When did PGE complete the line to North Vancouver? I remember a TRAINS article from the late '50s - early '60s regarding the hullabaloo that ensued when PGE decided to complete the line to N.V., disturbing a number of adjacent residents whose construction had encroached on what they assumed was an abandoned ROW.
