So in the meantime, I take it SRVI is storing them for the WCRA for a fee?  Heck, if the yard isn't going to be fully utilized, I see no issues with making some money off of it.  Of course, odds are likely they're being stored there gratis...

Hopefully they wont get a paint job for free............

Happened to be at the right place at the right time when SRY was switching the propane spur at M76.5 April 29.

I opted for pictures instead of video because I am still uploading videos from my Vancouver Trip last Friday. I did see the Hudson at the Via Yard while passing it on the Skytrian.  Did not get a picture though.

Awesome photos! I caught the Dayliner today as well, first sighting at about 4:20 at Somenos, then a couple more times at Cowichan Station and Shawnigan Lake before heading home. The passengers must have wondered why people were taking their pictures all afternoon!

HA, art..looks like hell...just another example of society deteriorating. Remember when the only Graffiti you would usually find was the odd political statement, or "Grad XX"? Wasn't very long ago. Look at video shot 10 years ago, and you won't find ANY of this "art" on the cars of a long consist. Now, practically every car has it. They particularly like freshly painted cars, the new Saskatchewan Grain Car corp. scheme seems to be a favourite to destroy.

I spotted a new (replacement?) rail just west of the Lampson St. crossing in Esquimalt today. It wasn't there a couple of weeks ago... so at least there's some track maintenance going on south of Duncan.  
 
It also could have been an old rail that had just been removed, since it was sprayed with orange paint.
 
(sorry for the poor picture quality... I snapped it on my cellphone)

Two videos I took this (Sunday) evening of the Dayliner. The first in Esquimalt between Admirals Rd and Lampson St:

And the second, near the roundhouse at the new Sitkum Rd. crossing:

These were both taken with my (new) iPhone. The video quality isn't too bad for a cell phone.

Early 1990's when 6134 was off for a rebuild.
