GP35 5019 and GP38 3009 along with their cab parked at Esquimalt while the crew was off duty in the summer of 1989.  In the morning they would head back up to Wellcox.

I was cleaning of the hard drive on my old computer today and I came across these. They were some pictures that Jason King sent me a few years back. Jason, I hope you don't mind if I post these up here.  
 
A pair of Baldwin-killers on what looks like a meet at Koksilah. Imagine that, 2 freights meeting somewhere south of Nanaimo.

SB switcher at Esquimalt? Back in the good old days when there was enough traffic in Victoria to actually have a yard job/switcher.

Nice pics, probably the early 80s. Well it is at least before 87, as they starting using GP38s that year.

In those days, the freights would run from Victoria and Wellcox to Koksilah, swap trains and go home, plus the Nanaimo crew would have to switch Top Shelf.  This would be more interesting than a meet.

Lets see - 8800's that would make it mid 80's.  Before that we had 8600 series GP9s here until 84 or 85

Yes, that is exactly right, and the first picture in that series of mine was taken while standing on the engines that brought the train up from Victoria. I was lucky enough to get a ride up and back one time.
 
The rest are all taken, as suspected, near Portage Inlet, or down behind by the old Victoria Plywood spur as I lived in that area. Time frame is mid 80's.
 
Cheers.

I got to ride the freights several times in the 80's - mostly out of Wellcox, but there was one or 2 hoggers out of Vic (I remember names but won't post them for privacy reasons) that would let me ride along.  Unfortunately most of my pics from that time did not survive.

Well look at that!! the nose made it over there!..that is great to see. Last I saw it, it had been turfed out of the "museum" in Squamish(along with ALOT of other salvaged  RS3 parts, most were scrapped)!!, where it had been put for safe keeping after being rescued when the 4 RS-3 hulks were sent north for scrap...it, and the rear hood section of RS18 630(saved for potential use to put the high short hood back on RS10 586 in PG, or to return a BCR RS-18 to original cosmetic condition one day) wound up sitting in the bush near the MOW sheds across form teh old sation site in Squamish. I had been planning on going to look if they were still there..great to see 576s short hood wound up where it was intended to go!
