Freight service was always a big factor in the BCER. There was a substantial amount of switching in the Vancouver area, plus the 65 mile run to Chilliwack which was built for the logging industry. After all other electric operations quit by 1958, a couple of the electric locomotives continued in service for several years until they were replaced by diesels.

BCER became part of the BCH&PA. Later the rail operations were sold as the Southern Ry of British Columbia. They are now controlled by the same people as Montana Rail Link.
