Some shots of ENR 3004 switching the Ioco spur in Port Moody in the Summer of 2000.

Hey ENR3005,
 
A off-island question.  Is the 3004 switching IOCO?  I thought that refinery was history....or do they still use it for storage?
 
Thanks for the photos......nice train at Cameron!

The train is actually switching the Ioco plant. If you look at the bottom photo one of the crew is standing by the gate into the plant. The line was almost shut down after poor track conditions caused a bad derailment in a residental area. In fact one of the tank cars ended up in the Mayor of Port Moody's living room who ended up suing CP and refusing to let them operate the line until the line was rebuilt.

The roundhouse is in pathetic shape.  All the bay doors are blocked off except for #1, and in some areas you can see where sections of the roof are missing.  

 
Yep, that's why the City of Victoria is suing CP, they say CP has violated several building codes and the Municipal Heritage Building laws.

It is interesting to see that the auger operation is still in full effect at Wellcox, with two hoppers spotted there.  Are those recent photos?

IIRC, the auger is left there year round. The hopper is actually from National Silicates in Parksville.

A detail of the bargeslip at Wellcox.   Anyone know how old this structure is?    It looks like it's in pretty good shape up close.
