Tfctrains and I had reason today to reminisce about trackage north of Courtenay's 5th Street crossing.  After showing him this photo, he suggested it would be of interest on the forum.  Here it is, August 1975.  5th Street is between the sulphur unloading facility and the hopper in the distance.  The tracks do not cross 5th Street today.

Thanks for the great photo! I have read about this facility in previous posts and was curious about what it may look like. Looks like there is another spur by 5th which branches to the right side of the photo.

There does seem to be a something in the photo just to the left of the crossbucks resembling a switchstand.  It is even more convincing in the original scan.  Hurts my head, though.  Don't recall another spur.  Let's see what tfctrains has to say about this one!

That was a long time ago, I really do not remeber one way or other, it sure looks like there is another spur. I will have to find my slide of 8000 at the end of track.

Looking at that picture and then at Google street view, that is quite a bit on industry in a pretty compact area. Street view shows that the ENG sheet metal building still has it's Rail Door. It's interesting how many buildings up and down the line still have their rail doors intact, at least as late as 2008ish when the google street view cars were on the island. Small glint of hope there!

Modelling Courtenay reasonably accurate in 1988 would mean what when it comes to putting these industries in?
 
In other words, how much of this stuff was still there in '88?

It is CP 5000. One of only two GP30's to be owned by the CPR.

That's right. I just remembered that and refreshed the page to delete my post. The GP30 was certainly a unique looking locomotive.

Yes, I think you are right, I wasn't sure last night when I posted the picture, looking at the mileposts I would say it is mile 37.7 which is Rogers Creek. It has been a while since we able to chase a frieght to Port Alberni and remember just where everthing is.

One of my main regrets is not getting any photos of the Port Alberni Turn, followed it at night a couple of times, but no pictures. Great photos again, Frank!
