I caught the Duncan turn at Top Shelf on July 20th.  What started as perfect timing for my work travel North, turned into a waiting game.
 
It seems "Rudolph" of the infamous "Blue-birds", suffered some sort of failure as they were getting ready to go.   The train stopped, and the Rudolp was swapped for a long-hood forward "Tank-top"  (these are goofy nicknames).
 
Both diesels were blowing smoke so I don't know what the deal was.
 
Here are the photos.
 
First photo:  False start in the leafy greens
 
Interesting note:   Tree behind diesel is a massive Black Walnut (Juglans Nigra), native to the eastern U.S. and southeastern Canada, and a bit of an oddity for the Island.   Wild Black Walnuts of millable size are now so rare, and valuable for their decorative rock-hard wood, that they are subject to poaching from private forest lands in America.   The poachers have even gone so far as to use helicopters to make off with the wood.

Love the "Great Northern" Long Hood Forward pics!
 
So why does Thomas the Tank Engine have a red parson's nose?

That's great Pyronova.  So it's Thomas and Rudolph.  I can live with that level of silly.
 
Long-hood-forward always rocks! (except I guess for the crew) .  Maybe someone should go paint a little white "F" on the frame rails at the long hood end.
 
I think I posted this pic before, but here it is again:  Vintage long-hood action from the "twin".

Washington Corp. is actually owned by a Japanese consortium of commuter rail companies, hence the red dot.  They will be running 200 mile an hour maglev trains from Victoria to Courtenay soon.

Meet at Chemainus this morning. A guy is waiting to throw the switch to let the Duncan turn continue. This pic is huge.

Rear shot of SRY 119 while it was at the Esquimalt Roundhouse during the E&N Railway Days. Does anyone know if this was the first time the SRY engine(s) have been this far south?
p.s. sorry about the massive size of the photo!
