Snack bar on 6148. I find it interesting that VIA would rather waste the space with a snack bar that's never been used(since 6148 showed up on the E&N) than having the extra seating. There's no food service on the E&N, it doesn't make sense to have a snack bar taking up space that could be used to carry more passengers.

Heading down to Wellcox, I heard another train - 3870 was coming out of the yard.  This was taken just before he crossed the old island highway

Nice photos, I especially like the switching shots which is something not many people do. Here is a photo I found from the G.Ferguson / Motis Collection of a pair of geeps at Wellcox back in the early 80s. 8668 has one of the more unique schemes applied to some units during that period.

The reason I put it in the photo is because I find it interesting as well.   I think it was served by the railway at one time.   If you walk around it all the doors and building angles suggest a historic spur.    Was it a feed mill or something?

from what i haerd,it was indeed a feed mill of sorts....ive seen it ever since i was a child and walked around it myself....there is no doubt that the railway served it....i would say probably right up until at least the late 70s.otherwise this structure would probably be gone by now.

That would be  the old Farmers Co-Op which had a 334 ft spur at one time according to Dave Wilkie's milepost guide. A shot from Hugh Fraser's video from 1989 gives a brief glimpse of where the spur might have been with a small pile of ties and disturbed ground by the white car.

neat screen capture.
 
It would be great if another feed operation started up on the Island with rail access.   Maybe some more traffic could be found for the Victoria sub.
