Great shots of the waterfront prior to the condos going up. All the industrial stuff is gone, and it looks like the work is in process to prepare the area for the condo foundations.
 
Thanks for sharing!

Extra 5020 North crossing Arbutus Canyon Bridge. This turned out to be the first E&N freight I'd observed running without a caboose.

The soon to be antiquated back end of Extra 3001 North. There were to be no more cabooses on E&N freights in another two weeks

3 units that day! Any idea on the length of the train? Wasn't a military move obviously...
 
What is now Victoria Shipyards' parking lot behind the train.
 
Thanks for continuing to post these great photos!
 
EDIT: I always wonder if the rails are still in place on the walking path from the gate into the shipyard...
 
Also, is that just an idler boxcar between the propane cars and the caboose?

Three units were quite common back in that era, even for the relatively low tonnage Victoria job. As I recall, this freight was the usual twelve or thirteen cars. The boxcar was an empty on the northbound freight, but I'm sure it had been a load on the way down. In those days, there was still a fair amount of loaded boxes coming into Victoria for a variety of businesses. That changed dramatically in just a few short years.
I haven't checked the old shipyard spur for many years, so I couldn't answer that question.

Instead of using a switcher, the three unit power of that day's northbound E&N freight, is moving the newly arrived CN GMD-1 1070 over to the CN/E&N interchange track.
