Here is a short video from the days of the Duncan Turn.

The photo does not show the same train but it is certainly similar.

Sweet video and picture Sidewinder! Oh how I miss those days  
I wish I had a camcorder or something to capture video of my trainchasing back in the CP days, but I had to settle for a cheap camera instead! I still have my memories though......

CLC is right but then I always found the actual running crews on the island to be a class act when ever I had to deal with them.  Thanks for the great post.

Thanks for the comments, gang.
 
vicguy -  I had the camera, but sure missed a lot.  Didn't realized during those years that time was of the essence.
 
thehighwayman - Perhaps it is time for an iMac?
 
CLC Fan - That CN bridge over the highway.... still can't help but look for it to this day.
 
Piglet - You welcome!
 
timberland#7 - You're on!  Went looking through my picture collection to no avail.  Got tfctrains working on it.  So far, I fear, there will be no hot dog.

There is certainly more that can be posted over time.   Your request prompted me to put this together.

I drool too much when I go into a Mac store ... Imac isn't enough for me though - I want a full-blown Mac!
 
I did eventually get to see the video though - great stuff!!
But for me, the only diesels that really represent the Island are Baldwins or GMD-1s.

Thats  great  stuff,Sidewinder. Thank you for  posting! made my day. Loved the courtenay turn vid in particular.  Pretty good sized  train for a courtenay turn in 1990 too.   I guess all they did right there  was  rearrange the pole cars for proper loading order and then next they wouldve switched the propane dealer and afterward the poleyard. Im a bit confused about the boxcars. Maybe at  this time boxcars were  still being set  out at  mudbay?  Im  asume  that the  frieghthouse at the end of the courtenay trackage probably didnt  recieve boxcars any longer at the time this video was  taken.  Hope to see more!

I caught the Duncan Turn today, I was hoping the transformers were coming down, but they weren't in the consist. First pic is at the Somenos siding where they will probably be unloaded. They were spreading gravel all along the siding right up to the rail, prepping for unloading of the very heavy transformers I guess.

I followed the train up to Nanaimo where it went back to Wellcox and swapped grain cars for propane cars. This pic is right behind Richardson Foods and the old GP9 sounded awesome as it was chugging up the grade there!

The box cars could have been idlers or one or two them could have been carrying a substance that was used for blasting, those cars were left at Buckley Bay and sometimes at Dunsmuir. The freighthouse did not recieve any cars after C.P. Transport went out of business. The gondolas may have been used for short poles.

Great videos Sidewinder! I too was a little young to appreciate the E&N back in the 1980s and I never got the camera that was on Santa's list almost every year. Well these vids are the next best thing to a time machine and I look forward to seeing more. My wife thinks I am nuts as I am checking the site every couple of hours just to make sure I haven't missed one of your vid posts. My two year old son and I spent a good portion of the evening watching some of your other videos, he's already given up on the Thomas stuff and graduated to E&N fanning with dad much to my wife's dismay. Thanks again.

Gee, ENR3005, replies like that are encouraging!  Same to you Torch.  Thanks for the comments.  There are more sequences I can put together and will do so but you can stand down for now. I will be taking a bit of a break.

OK, time for a bit more nostalgia (we can never get enough nostalgia on this board, can we?).  We're setting the Wayback Machine to June 2, 1983 for these shots.  First, we see VIA 6134 peeking out from behind an insulated boxcar at Victoria, as passengers get off train 198.
