So are the Rail America twins still here? I assume so.

I would think they will be here and operational until the official switchover at the end of the month.

Wow, great pictures everyone! I like the SRY colour scheme, very cool!
Let’s hope this historic day is a prosperous turning point for the ENR, I have no doubts that SRY has the determination and means of making this railway operate in the black. It's just a shame that the neglect went as far as it has... ohwell nothing that a hefty investment can't make better.

Yes, a hefty investment is definetly needed. On the way up from Victoria there were places along the route wjere you could not even see the rails because of the neglect.
 
   I met quite a few people while down at Wellcox today and it was a recurent theme among everyone on how Washington group must have something big under thier sleeve to even undertake an operation like this.
 
Sure learned the true value of this site  when I met quite a few people, who, for various reasons, can't join the site but value everyone's contributions and enjoy it for what it's worth.  
 
Truely a great day of railfanning on the E&N

Awesome guys, just awesome.  
 
The paint is great.  What a nice foot forward.
 
Check out that goofy tank car with all the hoses in front of them.  Who's getting that? Is it a insecticide car  ?

I'm sure you right Tyler, but for a moment I thought they might have brought their own "Round-up" with them.   Lord knows they'll need it.

Parksville December 22, 1992 - I wish I had run a little faster from my parents condo at the Madrona which was about 3km away  . Railfanning as a kid was tough work

I joined the joggers, dog-walkers, meth-heads, crack-addicts, and drunks for a stroll in Wellcox on Sunday.   The Canada Day party was still in full swing in the bushes beside the yard.

Second pic:  
 
Out with the old and in with the new.  I have to admit the RA geeps look a little more brawny than the new SRY units, though they may be mechnically duff.   Hopefully the new units are "sleepers".

The business end of 119.  What's the deal with the red dot?   The 119 has one on both ends, and the 110 only had one on the long hood.
