BCOL 4612 parked at the west of of the False Creek yard yesterday afternoon, March 22, 2017. I did a double-take when I saw BC Rail livery, parked and walked back to get a picture. There can't be very many of these left out there.

Re: Marpole Spur question - By davidjsc on 03/21/17 at 13:22:37 - 'marpole_spur_01.jpg' 172 KB
Driving near the Marpole Spur this past Sunday (March 19, 2017) and noticed they're doing some track replacement along the spur between Byrne Road and Glenlyon Parkway. Some of the old rails replaced out and ballasting, etc. Near the Bryne Road crossing, I spotted this equipment parked for the day and managed to snap a photo.

I didn't actually see any images of 1064 in this thread; this unit actually has 'OVR' painted above Central Kansas Railway.
 
Just thought I would share this coincidence with others who may understand my excitement (totally lost on the wife).  
 
Both units (terrible composition):

Where is mile 0.0 - 5.8 on the Marpole Spur? I just read that CP is officially abandoning that section sometime between 2010-2013. Not a surprise at all, but still sad to see a timeline attached to it.

Bringing this full-circle back to the original post, I did some exploring yesterday evening, and the end of the current track is now in fact Mile 5.8, the Milton Street crossing, as foretold back in 2010. There is also a sign in the middle of the track just west of the Oak Street crossing, presumably signifying "no train traffic beyond this point". There are still a couple of gondolas spotted under the Oak Street Bridge.

Re: Marpole Spur question - By davidjsc on 07/06/16 at 12:46:56 - 'marpole_spur_2016-07-05.jpg' 177 KB
Very interesting read! I stumbled across this forum/thread while looking for more information, history, etc. after photographing a train going along the Marpole Spur yesterday.  
 
I live in earshot of the Marpole Spur but in my 11 years living in the SE Vancouver area, I've only occasionally heard train whistles along the spur and only seen locomotives along it a couple times, once some CP locos parked and idling behind the mall at Byrne Crossing and then a loco parked over by Main Street ca.2006.  
 
Anyways, yesterday as I was heading out the door somewhere with my camera in hand, I suddenly heard the whistle so I sped off in the direction of the track to see if I could find anything running along it. Sure enough I did and managed to snap this (and a few others).  
 
Really sad to read that this line is on death-watch but then again no real surprise as commercial businesses that would use rail are fleeing City of Vancouver to elsewhere or changing to semi-trailer freight. Anyways thanks for all the great info here.

The next part of the set is the 'S' curve between 33rd and 37th Ave. This is my favourite part of the line and the part I walked the most in the early 1970's. From our house I could see the BC Hydro trains when they crossed 33rd and again near the top of the hill before curving out of sight toward 37th Ave. This stretch is also the steepest on the line and the longer southbound trains all needed 2 locomotives to get them up the hill. I remember many times that 1 locomotive would come back down the hill a few minutes later after being cut off it's train at the short passing siding in Kerrisdale.

Thanks emilydm. Lots of interesting info there. I look forward to seeing the video stills proving how the track arrangements were at that time. I'm relying on my memory of walking the track over 40 years ago. I have 3 more parts of the set to post over the next few days.  
 
The next part of the set is between King Edward and 33rd Ave.
