Wow those do look different along with the modified flat cars. Did the folks in N. Korea lose a pair of nukes during another test recently? All kidding aside those are some of the most interesting loads I have seen on the E&N. I'd love know what they are for.

Since the Alberni Pacific Railway seems so often overlooked around here, here is a picture from today.
 
Unfortunately for the visiting cruise ship passengers the steam locomotive wasn't available, so they had a ride from the old Diesel instead.  They still seemed to be having fun.

Nice shot Chris! I think I'm long overdue for a trip up there. Does the steam engine usually run?

Yes they usually run it, I haven't heard what has kept it back this weekend.  You can see its schedule of special runs here:

It starts regular Saturday, Sunday runs on the weekend of June 22 I believe and through to Labour Day.

That is easy, stand on the tracks with the train coming.  
 
 
I think Dan saw you as he turned up the firing rate to give you a smoke show.

Did they then back the train onto a yard track? I wonder why they wouldn't simply pull straight onto a yard track, cut off the locos, and pull through...the tracks are double ended IIRC. I suppose the conductor does less walking by backing into the yard track...

Just had a report that a freight is heading for Parksville, two engines and two tank cars? Stopped along Nanoose flats at present.

Hi Frank,
 
I haven't posted it yet under the movement thread as I am waiting for the return trip but yes this morning 2 locomotives and 2 short covered hoppers were northbound for Parksville.
