In the lap of luxury, complete with art-deco armrests.  My daughter gets 4 seats to herself in the half-full RDC.  One of the virtues of taking the train with kids.......and no restraining child carseat!

A view looking down on Finlayson Arm.  It gives an idea of just how much elevation is gained on the way up from Victoria at sea level.   At times the track is literally perched on a shelf of rock and gravel with the steep forested slopes falling away at near vertical angles.

a picture of the one powered truck on a Budd RDC (for those who like such things).

 
Cool photos! Just a minor correction, both are powered, only one axle per truck is powered.

Wow! Those are definately some rare shots of the Port Alberni Passenger train! BTW, what VIA car is that, 9306? Heh, here I thought 6130 was the only Phase 1 RDC that VIA used on the E&N.

Great pics! There's a pic of 3005 at Alyth in the July/August Branchline, in the new paint..not nearly as nice as the green, but at least its nice and fesh.
 
When the green paint scheme appeared in 96, I immediatley wrote CP to get the Pantone colours etc. for the paint scheme, they where more than helpful(as I always found CP to be, even though they've been involved in more than enough questionable activity when it comes to line abandonmentst etc.), and sent me all the diagrams and colour info..had dry transfers made, and did 3004. never did finish 3005...mostly because at the time, there were no HO non -2 38's to be had, so it was kitbashing, ran out of time.
Always thought that was on of the nicest contemporary paint schemes around

Great pics Mark, thanks for sharing them.  It always cool to see the yard full of box-cars on the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway.   I am guessing they were transporting rolled pulp out of Port Alberni?    
 
Always a bit depressing thinking how down-hill things went from there.

Not sure exactly what was being shipped at this point but obviously they were still running to Port Alberni.  This is how I remeber the Wellcox yard, you are definately right Cody, very depressing looking at it now, even on a busy day.  Here's hoping somone with a go get 'er attitude gets to run things, with the freedom to make changes and do whatever it takes to make things work.  We shall see...
 
Where was that picture taken Richard?

Here's one...since freddy's were new back then I snapped this...sorta neat to see the explosives placard on the boxcar.  Explosives haven't been mentioned as a viable cargo but mabye could be good for a couple car loads a year, who knows.  From where to where do you think this car was going?

 
That car was more than likely picked up at the Buckley Bay spur right in front of the ferry terminal for Denman Island. Explosives were used for the island highway project  during the early to mid 90s. Cars were dropped off almost weekly at times during peak construction periods. There is a picture that I posted in this forum a couple of years back that has an empty explosives car, two LPG cars and three 38s as power coming through Parksville.  Here is a shot of the spur where they left the cars sitting to be unloaded.

E&N 2-4-2T No.9 on the service track in Victoria next to some coaches lettered "Esquimalt and Nanaimo". This is the track that 6133 was sitting on, the one they'd stick the motive power for the Victoria Turn on when they layed over in Victoria. W.E. Butler photo

Nice picture of Hillcrest #10. If your wondering about the location of the Robertson river bridge, it is located on South Shore Road in Lake Cowichan between Mesachie Lake and Honeymoon Bay. The Climax was most likely going to switch the Western Forest Industries Mill at Honeymoon Bay. It breaks my heart to see those pictures though. Of the four lumber mills that were located on Cowichan Lake not a single one is still in existance. The last, the Youbou Mill, closed in 2002 after 73 years of continuous operation. It was truely a sad day in the Cowichan Valley.

I know this isn't exacttly the correct thread, but I am modeling a portion of vancouver island and wanted to use Lake Cowichan and Youbou in my model.  Does anyone have any decent shots of the Youbou mill, the wier at Lake Cowichan or the CNR trestle that crossed Wellington Rd. At least I think it was Wellington Rd.  Anyway, the CNR trestle that DOESN'T cross the river.
 
Thanks, Craig

Craig,
 
There is a book writen by Wilmer Gold, an industrial photographer, who spent most of his career shooting the Youbou Mill, and the Industrial Timber Mills camps (ITM Owned the Youbou Complex, and became BCFP in 50's) at Caycuse and Nitinat. I know the CNR bridge which you refer to, it is your basic trestle design (still standing in place over the street today) I will try and get a photo for you if i can. I Believe you can still walk most of the CNR right of way, save for places where houses have been built along the lake shore and over the ROW.
 
Also a little info on the weir incase you didnt know, and want some background info for your layout. The Lake Cowichan Weir was built in 1957 by British Columbia Forest Products to controll water flow to the newly constructed mill at Crofton. The weir keeps the lake level at around 62 million cubic metres in the summer months. In the spring and early fall Catalyst Paper controlls the water flow to a targeted level of 7 cubic metres per second. In winter the water may rise to an average of 3 meters above the flood controll gates. The Weir also consists of a Boat Lock to allow small boats to enter the lake or river.
 
as for the Youbou Mill, depending on the period, the mill consisted of a regular cutting Head rig, and a seperate planer mill. Also on site was a large 1/2 mile electric craneway for lumberstorage (it once held the record for the longest crane way in the british empire). In addition to the craneway, the mill aslo had a covered shed craneway for dry storage, along with several warehouses. I will take out the book tomorrow and post some pictures when i can, to save you the trouble of trying to find it.
