I see the grain hoppers in one of the pictures. I guess they are now trucking the contents to Top Shelf? Also, I see track machines in the yard. Are they ever actually used?

On my Christmas break now so I thought I'd catch the action at Wellcox today. I just missed the barge, it was sailing out of the harbour just as I was getting there. I watched the crew switch the yard and then they ran lite out to Superior and shuffled cars around before returning lite to Wellcox. Not very interesting, I'm not much of a fan of photographing "lite moves" but it is what it is.  
 
I did see them spotting the Top Shelf cars at the new transload area set up for them, they cleared an area beside the spur that runs down to the dock and set up the auger there.
 
Spotting cars at the Top Shelf transload:

 
The transload:

 
This truck arrived shortly after the cars were spotted:

Is SVI following any sort of schedule for unloading the barge and switching Superior? I haven't seen a movement on the E&N for years, and may get the chance to head up island Monday or Tuesday.
 
Any details about times/days of the week would be great.
 
Thanks,
Andrew

Hey Andrew, glad you're still on here! Barge comes over early Monday mornings, they left at 1030. Superior gets switched 3 times a week, I think M-W-F. Today they went there around 1, not sure what times the other days are.

Good photos Chris. Looks like they've got an organized setup going. Hopefully it won't be needed for too long.

Here is some more mystery photos by an unknown photographer from the same set as the ones of the passenger train I postes earlier.   They are simply labelled "Vancouver Island" and I know nothing more about them.   It is cool to see some of the action that went on "back in the day".   I assume it is a coal operation somewhere around Nanaimo, but that's just a guess.

Hello Cody
Browsing some of the early posts on this site and came across this great photo, this photo is of a structure that was situated on the north end of the CC(D) Ltd operations at Union Bay. There is a trail today that follows the middle track in the photo, it is a great walk, many things still to see. Thanks for posting this back in 2004.

Went down to the yard today to see how things look and took a set of photos and yes it actually started raining for the first time in about a month not long before I started shooting.
