This is a fantastic railway picture by any standard! Thank you for posting this

 
Thanks for the feedback!  Makes posting the photos that much more worthwhile.
 
Here is another Port Alberni sub picture that made me pause when searching for a slide that came to mind after seeing tfctrains' photo.  There is a GP-30 in the consist! Never got many opportunities to photograph it.  The idea was to get Mr. Arrowsmith in the background.  Didn't happen!
 
Westbound, Summit Lake, M21.8, January 1, 1991.

Very nice picture. Looks like there's a layer of ice on the lake...
 
I wish I had got around to railfanning the Port Sub. Unfortunately, I had only had my license and a car for a couple years before the mill switched to truck.

Please share whatever you can for the sake of those of us who...just aren't old enough to have been there.  

 
I clicked the shutter tree times as that train passed.  Thought the first and last in the sequence would be enough, but your comment prompted me to post all three.  Here is the second.  Tfctrains hollered at the crew in the cupola.  Startled them somewhat!
 
Gosh.... still think a train needs a caboose.

Here is a set of photos I took in August 1993 of the northbound Victoria turn. The first shot is taken behind the warehouses on Devonshire Rd. To the right of the mainline is the old Kelly Douglas spur that has not been removed yet.

The next photos are of them pulling an empty out of the EH Pope bakery that was in the Jacklin Rd warehouse. I remember there was an usual amount of low lying fog and it turned out for some surreal pics.

coupled up and ready to roll back to Nanaimo. It's hard to believe there was still a Victoria turn twice a week during this time.

its  great  stuff.. i remember  watching them  switch that warehouse  back in the early 80s when it  was a big food distributer plus grocery market. they would get up to 5 or 6 boxcars at  a time.  then it  all fizzled out and  different  occupants moved in.. I didnt  see any cars on that spur throo the mid to the end of the 80s..  then they started appearing in the early 90s  i  guess when the e.h. pope was  set up inside. I recall being surprised seeing a brown canadian pacific  40 box there.. it  mustve stayed for about a month before it was picked up.

The EH Pope spur is still intact from the switch down to the edge of the parking lot. You can see I think six loading doors along the edge of the building. It looked like the doors were about 2 car lengths apart, possibly allowing 12 boxcars to be beside the building with 6 being loaded/unloaded simultaneously. Then just move the cut of cars one car length and the other six would be lined up with the doors...
 
I wonder if that was how things worked when the traffic down to that building peaked.
