That spur is still there, albeit shortened. Pacific Wilderness used it to store some equipment(rather than Pay CP 800 bucks a day for the Vic West yard) between the 2000 and 2001 seasons.

EH Pope was a bakery inside that big warehouse on Jacklin Road. When that train showed up with that boxcar, I couldnt figure out who it was for. I thought they might leave it at the loading dock in the yard but they left Victoria with it. I was pretty surprised when they dropped it at that warehouse because it wasnt a regular customer. Anyway, heres a pic of that boxcar at EH Pope, January 29, 1993:

Great pictures guys. I have dug out a few more more from my collection to post. The first is a group of GP38s waiting for their next assignment back in the spring of 1992.

Some barge switching on around 4pm on June 6, 1994. The yard was very full this day as you will see in the next photo below.

I had never seen the yard so full. There seemed to be a healthy amount of traffic on the system at this date. Also you will note that CP had been doing some work to the engine area. Its hard to believe that so much has changed in the last 10 years.

Great pics, all!!  Keep them coming, especially of ones taken in the 1960's/70's, including structures.  This pic has an un-id SW (can't remember which  ), a high hood GP-9 #8835, and RDC #6134.

great pics! I felt like I was watching a slide show (refresh, refresh,refresh.....) As I was looking at your pics I was trying to piece everything together, where everything was located. I'm almost 29 so I have a vague memory of what things looked like around 1985. Cant wait for the CN pics
