I asked them about upcoming changes.... and they said they didnt know much but the rumour was that the change if any, would happen in September.

The tracks are ok but there is a general look of no use (To be expected of course)

Nice set of shots, B_Winkler.  Anybody know how many m.o.w. crew are on the payroll on the Island?   I was wondering if the "E&N Railway" sign on the doors of the truck is current?   Is the truck a C.P. truck?  or an R.A. truck?  Looks like they might be salvaging whatever is left to them out of that compound before the changeover.   Just a guess.

I know its off topic, but can anyone tell me when CP stopped using the covers over DB grids on their GP-38's?

i dont think they actually 'stopped'. I believe they just went on to order the 38-2s. Two of those locos in that picture  are gp 38 - 2s and are of a younger heritage. The original in the shot is a gp 38 ac.   You may already know that but i thought id mention that for the heads who arent familiar.   cheerios!

I took this picture today at Langford siding. These are loads of dust control liquid, right?
 
Boring picture, I know, but there isn't exactly a lot of action around here...

kootenayvalleyrailway that is a totally great shot of the mixed power!  It shows the CP multimark colours, E and N railfreight subsidiary livery, and a RailAmerica unit all at the same time.  It is like the recent history of the E and N all in one photo!    
 
Your uncle recorded a real slice of history with that one.

I was  wondering what year that mix power pic was taken. Was it 98 or 99, during the transition from CP to RA?
 
Thanks

Check out Wellcox in this pic...taken today.
There are a BUNCH of freight cars in the yard. Not sure which segment of the yard this is, but I took this picture from the bridge. I couldn't get any closer up pics because I had to chase a train...

Blue tanker with hose for unloading attached. It was being unloaded the day I was there. What a cool colour for a tanker, as opposed to black/brown or white.
