Here is a photo of the Bridge at Milepost 48 near Crofton.   Some fall colour, but sadly no train today.

Final pic of the four I took of the Bridge today.  Some detail of the construction.   I hope those rivets and those old rusty welds hold-up.   We are putting a lot of faith in the engineering of a by-gone era when we ride the dayliner.   Luckily it seems like these structures were built to last.  Hopefully RA, CP, or VIA is properly inspected the many bridges and tresltes along the line.  Sometimes I wonder if they are just keeping their fingers crossed.

Those bridges see regular maintenance and are inspected every few months. The only bridges that aren't are the ones on the Lake Cowichan Sub, because its abandoned and the Port Alberni Sub because its "railbanked".

An e-mail correspondence garnished a couple of E&N and CNR pics (see the CNR Pics thread) from a gentleman in Arizona.  These were taken by his father.  He also has a personal website of rail related pics and stories (he got a cab ride on a switcher from the roundhouse, on the turntable, and over to downtown Victoria and back in 1963), check out: http://www.shownontheweb.com/RR/html/dispatcher.html

I'm guessing it was just after RailAmerica took over. They ran trains to Courtenay, Victoria and Port Alberni for their board of directors.

Where might I find the E&N route for download? Activities also...
 
Just reinstalled MSTS and forgot how fun it really was, regardless of how 'boring' other people find such a game to be...

ENR3005 is still working on the route. I've made a few activities for the route, some based on the current operations, some fantasy ones. ENR3005 also has a few activities for the route.  
 
He sent me a copy because I volunteered to beta test the route for him.
