Another picture from the past, also taken July 1981 of North bound frieght at Mile 14,  Niagara Canyon Bridge showing G.P. 9 8646 with Baldwin switcher 7072. If my memory services me well, I believe 7072 was along to switch the Crofton spur , one of the last times that it was switched by the E.N.

Either that, or it wag going to Wellcox and being swapped with a switcher  up there.  They did seem to change them around a lot

Some old slides from the late seventies--hope the historical interest outweighs the poor technical quality.  First, RDC2 9103 at MP 0 for the ninetieth anniversary of the Victoria extension.  No station at this location in those days, so this was a special run.  Get a load of the semaphores protecting the Johnson Street bridge.  March 29, 1978.

The same car a few months later at Nanaimo on train 1.  By this time, a second RDC had been added to the train--that's 9067 behind.  August 1978.

Well, I did not get my house work done today either. I was in town just before 10 o'clock this morning, on my way home I would take the long way through Royston. I better check the pole spur on my way. The brush has grown so much you cannot see if the train is there or not, so I got as close as could to the tracks with out walking up to them, turned the car of and listened sure enough I could hear a locomotive idling. Well I think I will wait for it at Royston road.

I did not think the Royston shot turned out that well, it was hard see the sceen in the bright sun light. Shall I head up Royston Road to my home in Cumberland. Maybe just one more, Buckley Bay , its not to far.

The sun was not quite right at Buckley Bay , the west side of the train was a bit shaded. Maybe just a couple of more tries a little farther south.

Although the meet picture did not turn out well I thought I would share it with you. This shot shows SRY 129 and 124 leaving Dunsmuir. They have a bit of hill ahead. I remember some of the older engineer's telling me when they were still hauling coal from Union Bay they sometimes would have to double the hill ahead. Well it is time to turn around and head for home. Lunch at Buckley Bay, I better pick up something for supper, back to Courtenay. I think I will post to-days picture's before supper so it's not late for every one to see . Maybe I will tidy the house up tomorrow, I am not sure when I will cut the grass? It's tough being retired! Richard I tried phoning you  from Dunsmuir to let you know the train was on it's way, it said your phone was out of service.
