Oh and by the way, some of you may be interested in knowing that a portion of the CL&R log dump r.o.w. has been utilized as a walking trail.  It's only a short section.. you can see the remains of a wooden trestle and there's a section of rail in the drink.

 
Well, would you look at that! And, here I thought Lenora Mt. Sicker #1 was a shay!
 
Interesting the rails are still there.  Must go have a look and contemplate the passage of time.
 
Nice group of photos on the line into Wellcox, by the way.  Never did get a photo along that stretch during the CP days.

As usual those with power and no forsight scupper another good idea.  I gather most of it is now gone.  I have been off the island for so long I didn't get a chance to explore that area when it was "in waiting".

While I was there I could hear horns in the distance and it was not the Dayliner. I ended up getting this

Nice video
 
This is the second shot within the past few days I seen of 129 operating by itself. Anyone know if there is anything wrong with the other loco, or if they are just trying to economize on fuel by running just one of the twins?

I remember a discussion on the yahoogroup about the Baldiwn a while back(years). The time it spent at the Pulp Mill in Campbell River was not kind. The engine needed a lot of work and the frame was badly corroded. The 8427 was in much better shape.

Funnily enough, if one does some looking, I think there just might be more operable Baldwins around today than RS-3s...mostly due to the US military units that have been kept around, and not accumulated mileage. Operating 244's however, only a handful. I'm so tempted to go to the D-L just to witness 3 RS-3s working hard together!

For the first time since early 1993, I decided to try and chase the Duncan Turn today. It showed up just before 11:00, while I got to Duncan at about 10:00, not knowing exactly when it would get there. I followed the train all the way to Nanaimo and then I lost it: it had picked up a few propane cars at Stockett and headed up to Superior. By the time I caught up to it, the crew had parked and gone into a restaurant for lunch. I hung around for about an hour, but it was 2:00 and I had to head for home.  
 
It was a fun day, some of the roads that I used in the past have been blocked off so I had to use a slightly different route get to the photo locations I had in mind. I'll post a couple photos here and then link to the rest on my Flickr page.

Heard that the Unit blew a hose and was down for the count where you thought they were having lunch.

Ah, that makes more sense than my lunch theory! I guess the running one unit experiment is over

I have explained before why the vo 1000 was saddly scrapped. Squamish said they wanted it but never took it other groups were asked but were not that interested because of the monumental task of moving it . the problem was the track from the shop to the north yard was removed and wasnt told that the tracks were going to be removed trapping it from a rail conection. had that not happend we would have dragged it back to the shop were the rest sit today.Ilooked into using house movers who I had worked for in the past to move it but still very expensive for my wages and to busy with self employment to move it. believe me it is my favorite locomotive and hated to hear it was beeing scrapped. also regret not cutting the front end off at least and making a model train display cabinet, but like Isaid I was working 18 hours a day so no time to even do that.It wasnt in as bad of shape as mentioned here but it would have been a big job mostly the engine needed rebuilding.There were several crates of new and used parts that did come with the loci and I had the injectors and pumps rebuilt also had a couple of buddies who had worked on baldwin lima hamilton engines willing to do the work on the engine.As for the semaphores they still exsist and probably be rebuilt for the town of ladysmirth. send me a message if you want more info.
