Unloading the Carrier Princess for the last time, December 27, 2012. Shortly after this, she would go to the shipyard and have the rails removed from her deck.

No suprise considering how old all the self propelled railcar(formerly) ferries are.
 
They are almost all in need of replacement due to age anyhow.

I imagine using tug and barge is a lot cheaper as well: smaller crew, less fuel, etc.

I can remember seeing a Baldwin on that job!  The Geeps look nice, too.  Thanks for the pic, Chris.

Back when the barge was loaded Saturday mornings, cars are being gathered and put in the correct order to go onto the Carrier Princess. There was 4 pole loads that day. September 1, 2012.

Returning the compliments, sir:  beautiful pics!   Glad you and TFC are still catching the action for us.
Nice to see the damp coastal weather in the Jingle Pot crossing pic, even the wee bit of snow in the corner!

Thanks Matt, I try to catch what I can! That bit of snow was the extent of my snow photos that winter, I don't think it qualifies as a blizzard though

I wonder if Top shelf will transload cars at Courtenay once the tracks are repaired?
 
I also wonder if the pole spurs will be re activated?

Beautiful shot Chris. The Townsite Rd. crossing is one of my "home" crossings as I live just down the line at the Rosehill St. crossing and can see the Townsite crossing out of my window as well.

Thanks Dave! I was actually wondering if I'd run into you there

Nice set of photos! Here is a link to video I found the E&N in 1996. 12+ minutes of various freight operations on the line. What is neat is the small unit train of chemical cars into Port Alberni. I had see a photo or two of such trains but never a video before.

That's a great video! Kind of surprising how fast they used to go back then, I'm just used to how it is now.
