How are things coming along?  I hate moving, looks like we will be moving soon too, what a pain in the neck.  
 
I was just wondering if you could mabye post a few shots you have found.  Where are your shots from the BC interior taken?  Perhaps we could use the 'Crowsnest pass and area photos' thread, or start a new one, what ever.  I have tons of recent pics of the Windermere and Cranbrook subs as well as some from the Moyie sub and eastern end of the Nelson sub.  This summer I am planning to tag along with the McConnel turn and ride a freight along Kootenay lake into Nelson just for the sake of doing it.  This is a night run so I'll have to wait until the days get longer to be able to take any pictures.
 
Later...

 
 
The moving went great other then my computer desk falling apart into 10 million pieces - mental note never buy a particle board desk again. I ordered a new one on the weekend which should arrive today some time. When I get all my stuff unpacked in my new office over the next couple of days I will start scanning the pics and posting them under a new thread in the other forum. There is a little bit of everything, the locations are Grand Forks, Warfield, Trail, Castlegar, Fruitvale, Nelson, Slocan Junction, Cranbrook, Kimberly, Canal Flats, Golden, Lumby, Vernon, Sicamous, Revelstoke, Kelowna and a couple others.  
 
I look forward to seeing the photos of your future trip.

Awesome shot Mark!
 
Seeing some of Tyler's great photos at lunch today made me want to unpack our stuff a little quicker and get some of mine posted. After digging through 20 boxes this afternoon I finally found the photos and will start scanning and posting them tomorrow on both sites.

Here is a shot of the E&N's future office. Prior to being renovated as an office it was used as repair facility for the CP Transport truck fleet on the island from what I understand. Shot was taken in October of 1997.

A shot that I took of GP9R 8236 during my tour of the yard with the manager back 1992. I had justed missed going out on the Port turn for a day trip due my parents being unavailable to sign a release form letting me go along for the ride. That was the only time they ever let me down while growing up

A shot of a ballast hopper and freshly ballasted track at Parksville junction. Cp sure had some weird ideas on what do use as ballast for E&N track at least it was pit run sand on this occassion but not much better.

Here is one of my favorite boxcars that CP owned and used on the E&N. There 20 or so of these ex Milwaukee Road boxcars that were assigned to the E&N from the late 80s to the mid 90s before they were sold to a shortline in the US. They were some of the largest and heaviest boxcars used on the E&N at that time. These cars were responsible for turn rails on the Wellcox spur more then on one occassion.

What do you do when a unit or two craps out on your Port Turn? You send a rescue unit. I caught this unit at Parksville at sun down back in Sept 1999 and followed the lone unit all the way out to Cameron Lake and by that time it was dark. The Port Turn had stalled somewhere along Cameron Lake and the lone unit was sent to shove on the tail end of the train judging by the amount of noise I heard echoing off the mountain walls in the darkness. I missed seeing the Port Turn due to me having dinner with some friends, so I have no idea what units and tonnage the train had. It would have been cool to get a shot of an E&N train with a helper. It would have been like one of those Warfield hill shots.

41 cars, five short years ago........................I would be happy with 14 cars.   Lets hope the new operator can get 50% of that traffic back.

West end of Cameron Lake siding (in background) showing westbound #2813.
 
Photographer and exact date unknown.  It was taken after a hike up a ridge on the north side of Cameron Lake and was using the r.o.w. to get back to his car when the train came along.

This thread has been rather quiet as of late so here is another one of my shots taken at Wellcox sometime in 1991.  I believe this was just after the freddy's took over from cabooses and this surplus equipment had not found a home yet.  The wheels on the vans to the left are rusty but the wheels on the van to the right still appear to be shiny.  I'm pretty sure that the scale house is right behind the second caboose on the left...

 
Might have been earlier than when they started Cabooseless operation over here, as the first 2 vans on the left are older ones that they quit (regularly) using earlier when they got the ones with the wider cupolas.
Note this is strictly going from memory and I may be wrong on this
