Excellent pictures, TR1467. That stuff is gold! Some of the younger railfans might not even remember the CN/CP era on VI.  I cant remember a colour picture of the staged meet during the last run of CN1000 to Cowichan Bay. Thanks. Oh, by the way, welcome to the forum.

I was traveling North on Thursday the 15th, when I caught the Duncan turn at Top Shelf.   I had a work schedule to keep so I couldn't chase it back to Wellcox (darn it), but I snapped a couple pics on the fly.
 
Check out the plant life!

Thanks guys,
 
I wish I had the chance to follow it North.  
 
All in all it was nice to see RA in action before whatever change might be coming happens.  I was surprised that they spotted the hoppers right into the mill.   I had the impression that Top Shelf did most of the shuffling themselves.   Someone once posted that they did some moves with a truck or something.  I can't remeber.
 
That truck is very old-school cool.

Hopefully we will see much more of this type of activity in the yard.  This picture is misleading.  It is actually the tail end and the GP9's are not powered at all.  The twins (GP38's) are leading and way up around the corner just out of sight

Great pictures Bob! Thanks. So are the Rail America twins still here? I assume so.
 
Cheers.
