Nice photos!!! It seems so wierd to me to see cars in the Victoria yard! That track that the tankers are on, when the PAW was in town I had to dig out all the ballast between the ties. That was a back-breaking job, but I loved it because I was working for a Railroad. Those photos of the 6134, I think there was just the one budd in the roundhouse. I don't think the 6135 showed up until later, in the early 1990's as did the 6148 and the 6133 was probably being used on the train that day. The 6134 was wrecked in 1992 when it slammed into an empty propane tanker truck, bending the frame.

Just before Store St. service ended I think, could be wrong though. I was only about 8 years old at the time. Someone like CP8673 or 95XXX would probably know.

Snow at Langford. I stood here wondering why the Malahat hadn't gone by yet, at 9:00 AM. Before I realized they were on the ground in Esquimalt.

I know some of the history but I've only been on the Island since 1987.

The E&N stopped running down Store St. in 1992. 6701 was the regular, but when CP sent it to Coquitlam for maintenance other units like 6713, 6718, and maybe an SW1200RS or two, was sub'ed in for it.

The usuals (after Alcos and Baldwins went the way of the dodo) were 6701 and 6702.  Unfortunately, as my records of what was here come from MBS Clearances, the odd train order and the train register from Hayward.  I can't say anything specific about when a particular switcher was here.

Not too sure what those two boxcars were doing there. I don't think the mill was using rail service but you never know. I know the Coastland mill just South of the yard received boxcars from time to time during the early 90s.

I will give CP the credit of keeping a clean property and maintaining the ROW to acceptable standards. Here are a couple more that were shot in the summer of 1995.

The only unit sitting in the yard that day. Both a Courtenay and Port Turn had left a couple of hours earlier and I had no time to chase them as I had to catch a ferry back to the mainland.
