Wow, some of the Wilkie pictures have turned up!
 
Those centennial train pictures have always been good for an argument..."there has never been an F-unit on the island!!!"..or " No Grove sleeper ever set a wheel on the island!!"   A "modern" conventional passenger train on the island....just looks SO strange!...especially the one in the snow...most E&N pictures just scream "E&N"....that one just screams, "NOT E&N"!
 
If it was different, and it happened in BC, Dave Wilkie would have a picture to prove it!!!

I am surprised to see that Geeps were used back in the 60s on the Cowichan Sub. Even though its only an excursion train, I would have thought that the Baldwins would have been used.

I am so glad to see pictures of the Centennial train.  I mention it to people and so many go "I remember that I think" but few have pictures of it.   I have not had much luck in finding pictures so these two are  a blessing.

Is it just me, or is there a person out on the telegraph wires? I'm sure i'm just seeing things but it does look an aweful lot like it.

Wasn't there a sawmill at Nanoose Bay? I doubt its the old Barge slip as that was further south.

There was a mill at the siding in the picture.  The barge slip was south of here and the sidings were on the right side going south.  At one time when you went north on the highway and where the bridge crosses the tracks, you could see the operator shack on the left side of the tracks.

Further to the above: the station name was Jayem.  I also noticed in the 1984 timetable that the wye at Parksville had been removed.
