CFP 301 has just exchanged loads with the 304 and 303 and is about to tie on to the empties at Siding Four. CFP 304 and 303 will head north with the loads as soon as 301 pulls in to clear to head south.

thankyou,TFC trains for your photos and knowledge. I am in the planning stage of modeling the Englewood logging claim,  I was in Englewood in 1956 when the first SW1200,s were delivered, Beaver Cove was still under construction and the logs were loaded at camp L to be brought to the beach. I was only 10 years old at the time but returned to work in all the camps in the 1960's. Used to hang around with George Lutz's son when I worked in Woss.

Here is a clip from footage shot in July of 2002 during a scouting trip of the line for a possible documentary. I spent several hours in a high-rail with an employee touring the line and operation. I have more footage that hopefully will end up on DVD soon along with my Port Turn video!

I wonder if the train crews call the caboose "the penalty box"

Here is a news video on #113 going into its new home. Look at the video section in green on the page.

I am interested in learning and preserving the history of the railway on Vancouver Island. With a lot of the History taken away we must work hard to insure our kids have the ability to watch and ride the rails we have left and enjoy seeing so much.

What a waste of a good locomotive. And they still don't want to build a roof over it. Too far gone he said? They let it go that way, and should be ashamed of it. The IHS could get it going. Meanwhile the IHS got the #112:
http://www.avtimes.net/news/local/10-000-donation-will-be-used-to-move-historic-locomotive-to-the-alberni-valley-1.1492517
 
Had it been my way, the #112 would've gotten a cosmetic restoration to be put on display in Woss and the #113 to Port Alberni to be restored to operational condition.
 
Just to clarify, the B.C. Railway Historical Association owns/owned the #112?
 
On a side note...
Finally had a chance to look in the latest Trackside Guide and according to it, Doug in Kelowna does have the CL&R #16. Gonna have to swing by his place next time I'm visiting my sister. Would be nice if the IHS could acquire that one.

Great set of photos, Frank . . . thanks for posting.
P.S. Those crews sure took pride in their equipment -- they almost sparkle.

What's happening out at Woss these days? I'm planning a photography trip up there next week. Does anyone know which loadouts are operating at the moment?
