Hard to believe with all the rusty little used rail around that they considered ripping up the Port sub to fix the Vic sub. Nice pix, B_Winkler.

I was down there about 9:30 AM and they were just starting to unload the rail cars.  i dont know when the barge came in.  I would have stayed to the end but i ran out of camera battery and personal heat about the same time.  It was cold down there this morning.

Very interesting barge series, thanks for catching the action, B_Winkler.
 
Here's a trio of pix taken while waiting in Nanaimo. Apparently one engine cut out on the way down, and the boys came out to have a look.  The only one who got his hands really dirty was the conductor himself, a friendly fellow named Jeff.

The guys kept talking about a valve sticking, and tried restarting several times to no avail, so we carried on under limited power.  The engineer was maybe trying some tactics to persuade the old girl to keep going as just out of Shawnigan lake there were some short bursts of high engine revving and whining coming from the engine compartment.  We kind-of crawled up the Malahat, and at one point about two thirds up the Budd simply got tired and just sat there for about three minutes.  It got us over the top eventually allright and into Victoria about 45 minutes late.

Lifting the pan into place.  This was on March 8, 2006, southbound.
 
The day before, after I asked quite a few reasonably intelligent questions about the Dayliner operations, the conductor said that he would have let me into the front to ride cab with the engineer, except that the ICF was doing efficiency evaluations, and he didn't want to risk anybody official seeing non-crew members up there.
He ended up talking to the engineer anyway, and I got to stand up front for the better part of Duncan to Ladysmith.  Pretty cool to see things as they come to you, not just out the side as they go by.

Does anyone have any shots of the barge itself?  Or perhaps the slip on the mainland?

Welcome to the forum, JNewall. I think we should all be taking pictures of the E&Ns historical structures like the roundhouse and the like. The reason the roundhouse still looks like it did 40 years ago is mostly neglect by its owners. Its privately owned now, and part of a future highrise project site. Take some pictures while it still looks like it does. The future is often unkind to the past.
