I wonder if that centerbeam is leaving - unloaded?
 
Is there a chance someone just really screwed up a switching move in Vancouver and the car came over by mistake?   Or does that kind of thing never happen?

I guess the question is: did it come over empty?  At one time they brought ties over on the centre beam.  I will not be at work on Monday so I will not be able to see if it leaves the island.
Here are some shots of the yard.

it has been sitting around for a few weeks now in the yard.. it was coupled to a MOW consist in the back of the yard ,  then it was thrown into a cut of cars last week.. but hasnt moved.
 
As far as anyone can tell, it came over empty.  
 
The thing about centerbeams is that they have to be loaded relatively equal from side to side... so a location to load / unload  its fairly specific.

Here are some of Via 6133 before it went to Victoria.  The "old girl" has seen better days.  Compression spoils the shot.

Chris: at the time the centre beam was unloaded at the spur by the mill.  They used what I call a make shift fork lift.  It took forever to unload and bring the ties down by the shop track.  They just take one bundle from one side and go back and do the opposite side.  This was back in the ENR days.  The last loads of cedar ties came in on flat decks.
More shots of Via

I took my son to see Wellcox yard this Sunday afternoon. There are well over 50 cars of all sorts in the yard...

Judging by the lack of hi-vis, I'd guess.... trespassing in a very dangerous place

So I guess you weren't trepassing when you took those photos of the cement transload in 2005 You'd be hard pressed my friend to find anyone on this forum who hasn't tresspassed at least once.
 
The yard is down on Sunday. The geeps were dead and all the mow and highrails were parked.  
 
If you still feel the need to be a hero, PM me and I'll provide all the info you need to take to the police, along with your high horse....

I was just pointing out a safety issue, after 20 years with CPR, I've seen more than my share death and destruction on the railway,needless injuries and death of trespassers and I would not allow my children on the property. Have you ever heard "any time is train time?" What about  unintended movement of equipment( 3 cases in the last year in Wellcox yard), including vandals and trespassers releasing handbrakes...not a yard crew on duty, either. But if you don't respect trespassing rules, your kids won't either. Just pray that when they get older, they don't think its ok to be so close to equipment and end up in more pieces than they left home in.
And o ya, since you took so much time investigating my submitted photos...yes, I had permission to be on sight, and was required to wear Hi-vis/hard hat  and had a company escort while taking photos.
 So rather than blowing a fuse because you got caught doing something stupid, take it as advice from someone who cares, and does not want to see another body in more pieces that it should.Those sights live on forever in memory. Trespassing is not safe,period!
High horse, indeed!

i have to agree, i have hit a tresspasser just south of red deer for not obeying saftey rules, i have also seen numerous cars start by themselves for no apparent reason, handbrakes are good if they are applied, and with the amount of homeless around the yard, i would not be taking chances with someone so precious. I understand the best intentions, and that it is great your kid shares your admiration for trains, but just think, how would you tell your wife/mother if anything had happened?
