Here's an old shot of the dockyard switch when it was newly (briefly) reinstalled and the spur cleared around 2000, when they wanted to service the Budd Cars down at the drydock instead of in the roundhouse. That plan never came to fruition and the switch was re-removed shortly afterwards. That's the only time anything ran on that spur since the early 1980s, was some MOW equipment in 2000.

Re: E+N Track Work - By CLC Fan on 11/05/17 at 20:57:49 - 'Welcox_B_Nov5-2017.jpg' 363 KB
They removed the south switch that once lead to the scale house recently.  Several clean ties and the ballast smoothed out.  There has been some clean up of the ballast around the south end of the yard too.  This probably explains the presence of some mow equipment parked next to the inspection pit. (Sorry for pic quality, phones take lousy pics and resizing them decimates it further).

After the E&N freight had passed by, railfans are seen walking back to their various vehicles.
Soon the 1000 would blast it's horn and begin the melancholy journey down to Cowichan Bay, leaving the Cowichan Valley without a CNR presence for the first time in nearly seventy years.

One last opportunity for a great photo happened during the GMD-1 1000's last journey  
down the Tidewater Sub. The 1000 rested on the trestle and waited for that day's northbound E&N freight, the Extra 8828 North to pass under and give all the gathered railfans a memento they wouldn't forget.

The GMD-1 1070 is approaching the Darwin Avenue crossing, with a loaded grain car  
and an empty boxcar. The boxcar was needed because the grain car had some problems  
with it's brakes, so the boxcar was added to aid with moving the hopper safely.

Here are some photos of the barge unloading taken today. I took a break from work and went over to the yard for an hour. Soon I will try to take a set showing both the unloading and loading. The slight orange hazy look in the photos is from the smoke over Nanaimo being blown west from the forest fires in the B.C. interior.

They are using Ex M&B 11 a 1942 GE 65 toner pulling 3 cars. I understand they will be tours of the steam sawmill at Mclean Mill but they will not be operating it. The logging show with the Steam Donkey will only be operated on Fridays when it is safe to do so. They hope to has the trestles re inspected soon.

I am truly stunned at the magnitude of the victory for the railway today!  VIA and SVI have come to a tentative agreement pending ratification by the Boards and such.
 
The new Dayliner service will be centred in Nanaimo with service starting there in the morning, going to Victoria, leaving Victoria on the traditional run to Courtenay and back and then return to Nanaimo.  SVI put together the business plan that has now come to fruition.
 
Once all the stuff is signed and the funding is released the track and bridge work should take around 9 months.
 
What a great day!  We've all waited so long.
 
I'll upload pictures later.
 
Yes!

 
Well, here we are, a few days over exactly 3 years ago since this "victory for the railway".  
 
Suckers. There's one born every minute.
