White pages for Victoria, BC, September 1958. Back when the CPR & CNR had a big footprint on the Island.

It had been just over a year since I caught any E&N action, so on December 28 I went to Wellcox and watched them unload and reload the barge and then head out to Superior.

Do we know why they've moved a caboose to the island? Just for yard staff accommodation?

SRY didn't need it anymore and MRL wouldn't take it, so they sent it to the island. If they ever do the work on the tracks it could be used for that.
