An unusual meet in Ladysmith --I think I took this around 1988

That would be whe they moved CLR 11 & 12 from static display near the highway to the shops to begin restoration

Someone mentioned a long time ago about looking forward to when more people got on the boards and started posting historic pictures from their collections.  
 
I think that what we are seeing is this wish starting to be fulfilled.
 
THANKYOU to everyone that keeps posting all the amazing and cool pictures, from the past and present.   I think I can say that we all are TOTALLY enjoying it!!!!

Does taking the passenger train from the old station back in the days of steam count??  

 
OK, baldwincp, I'm officially impressed!!!  My first trip on the E&N was in 1968, and I remember getting on at the old station.  I also remember, a few years later, going down to the Store St. station to meet someone off the train.  He was visiting from Japan, and had left a book, in Japanese, on his seat "as a gift to the company."  (I guess that's a custom over there).  I still remember Don MacLachlan getting out of the cab with the book and tapping on our car window, to make sure that our friend left nothing on the train!  E&N crews have always gone the extra mile with customer service--one of the things that always made "our" railway a class act all the way.

Awesome photo of 6148 at the turntable, CLC Fan!  Great lighting and unusual angle make this one of the best E&N shots I've seen, IMO.  Thanks for sharing!

Hi CLC Fan - that shot of 6148 is a really GREAT picture. I'm working on a magazine feature on Budd cars for Model Rail International. When I get going with it (AFTER my forthcoming trip to the island) I'll be asking you for permission/a high-res copy for publication.

Southbound freight - Victoria turn - with two GP-9s near Cliffside in 1981.

My late wife (then aged 24) flagging the Dayliner at Shawnigan in 1976. We weren't sure how you 'flagged' a train so Diane did it the same way she'd stop a London bus!

The shot at Cliffside, of the freight, is NORTH bound, I've just discovered, and the Lincoln grain car in the Rolling stock thread is 1976 not 1981.

Here's the end of that 1976 run from Shawnigan into Victoria, just for those who like the hockey mask. I thought it was great, too, and I really enjoyed that virtual job that one of you guys did with the blue hockey mask on the VIA RDC. I was really disappointed when I realised it wasn't genuine!

The VIA plain yellow doesn't look nearly as good. Reminds me of the worst time on British Rail, with characterless yellow ends on everything.
This is near Cliffside in 1981.

The sand tower lasted until 85, but could be off by a year

A couple more golden oldies - the last before I set off to Heathrow. Here's 1077 on the E&N at Shawnigan with the Museum Train. I wasn't there - my sister took this.

This was in 1990. I was trying to be a bit 'arty' with pictures of the Dayliner. This was at Shawnigan Creek.

And this one, also in 1990, was taken as the heading for an article I wrote about the effort that was being put into closing the E&N rather than promoting it. The road sign seemed appropriate!
