Now to the other end of the line, my favorite locomotive of all time CP's Baldwin 8000 pictured at Courtenay.  This spot is now the end of track. In may 1973 there was another 1000 ft track + or - where the chemicals etc were unloaded for the pulp mill in Gold River.

Moving right along in time to May 1975, here we are in Nanaimo. The train is pictured just south of the station. When I first looked at this picture I was not sure where it was because of the siding to the left. The last train I saw in the siding would have been in the 1975 I think, the Museum train was displayed in the siding, shortly after that the siding was removed.

We are now at about MI 14.1 on the Victoria Sub, not the best photo but it does show the old CPR colors which I have always thought were the best of any railway company! Photo from July 1974.

You're right, 8417 is a GP7 and the third unit is considered a road switcher. Can't wait to see more! Do you have any shots of the different customers being switched back then?

I did find a photo tonight of a Hydro transformer in the Dunsmuir Spur at mi 110.8 which I will try and post soon. Here is a photo of 7072 at Wellcox taken Nov 1980.

 Should be outside in the sun but having to much fun looking thru old slides. This photo was taken Sept 27,1982. It is at Mile 110.8 on the Victoria sub. This spur was put in for Hydro after protesters had blown up a transformer at Hydro's Dunsmuir Sub Station. This Spur is just north of the Big Qualicum River Bridge.

Tsable River Trestle after it was rebuilt, showing one of the first trains to make the trip to Courtenay after the line was reopened. After the rebuilding of French Creek and Tsable River Trestle's. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, it is not a Kodachrome slide plus not very well lit, it does show a train of the era.

Sorry for jumping all around. Just not enough time to post them all. This photo shows CP's 8006, 8007and I think 8008 after a head on collision. The date on the slide says June 1973.

As you can see from this photo it is not 8008 it is 8011 with 8008 behind it. That's all for now, more later when I have more time. I hope you enjoy these photo's from the past. Sorry the quality is not the best.

Those are remarkable photo's and Im glad you posted them.  Its sad when an endangered species lose members but its a fact of life unfortunatly.  Considering what actually happened to them and forces involved, they actually came through better then some types would have.  Just makes me sad to see some of my favorite engines like that.  Thank you once again for posting them.

No real apologies necessary...I'm sure I speak for a fair number of us here who "thank you very much" for both taking the photos when you did and then taking the time to scan and post them here.  Since time travel hasn't been perfected yet, it's photos like this which allow us to see stuff from the island when we weren't around.
 
Looking forward to more from your collection.
 
Cheers,
Jon

Taking the afternoon off. A photo from July 1981, showing some ballast cars waiting to get loaded at Fiddick's Pit.

 A north bound Budd car at Trent River. I am not sure of the date, I think it is May 1983. Sorry for the branches sticking into the picture, just wasn't tall enough to reach them.

Love this photo of CP 7070 out on the Victoria sub doing some swithing north of Nanaimo.

That is a great photo! I didn't realize they used those switchers (S2?) around Nanaimo, I thought they were only used in Victoria. Did you note where these boxcars were coming from?

I am not sure where they are heading with the boxcars, maybe there is some one on here that can help us out. I know there was a spur just north of the station.
