It's just a simple case of "It could never happen to me!"

CLC:  Great shot in the back shop.  Any chance the next time you are there to get some interior shots of the round house?  The last time I was there was about 20 years ago.  A friend of mine took a few pictures of the inside of the round house at that time.  If I can get his permission, I will post them.  I think this is another area that needs to be recorded.  There are a few "old structures" around that are interesting and soon will be gone.  My friend started to take pictures of what are left of the train stations on the island.  Unfortunately he did not get the job finished.  Another interesting building down at the Victoria Yard is the Ormand cooky factory.  Not sure if the sign is on the wall still.  Another interesting structure is the car shop.  That is one building I have never seen the inside of.

Actually, you are all wrong: the best burgers available are at a place called "The Scarlet Ibis" and it's located in a remote logging town called Holberg.. halfway between Port Hardy and Cape Scott Park.  Of course, when you're 5 days in the bush and eating Crap Dinner and sand, -ANYTHING- tastes awesome!  

 
I will attest to this. Their fries are also really good, and for where they are located, the prices are reasonable. My sister was born in Holberg, so I've been there a couple times. Definitely worth the trek, as it's on the way to Winter Harbour, and Cape Scott park. If you're railfanning the Englewood railway, it's only about 2 hours farther up the road.

110/119 switching Top Shelf on 24 May 2007. Anyone get a photo of the Union Pacific hopper? I missed it - didn't see it till I passed by on the Highway next day.

Another on the same day. A week later they picked up the two dust control tanks along with the empties. Can someone explain how this dust control material is used? On the track or the highways? Is it off-loaded into something else and sprayed? Excuse my ignorance - it's not something we need in rainy England!

It is for road use and you are correct, it is offloaded into trucks and sprayed on the roads

The dust control, which I think is Magnesium Chloride, is used on gravel roads and dirt logging roads.  It is a kind of diluted salt and works by pulling moisture out of the air to "wet" the dust the same way salt pulls moisture out of things that are "salt cured" like meat.  It is actually the water in the air that ends up keeping the dust down, not the chemical itself.
 
The old method of spraying crude oil all over the gravel roads is no longer acceptable.  I guess no-one likes oily well-water these days.

Thanks, guys. I've still got a lot to learn from this forum and it's great that there's always someone who knows the answers.

You should see some of the tracks at Thornton yard, they have about the same amount of weeds.

Does anyone know if the Alberni Sub was treated during the recent weeding work?  I know there's no traffic (freight) on the line but it is only going to get harder to re-use that line if the SRVI doesn't stay on top of the maintenance and weed problems along the right of way now.

Looking at your photo CLC, I wonder if this year's herbicide spaying isn't going to make for a few more brake-fires along the right-of-way this summer.  Then again even the live plants dry out pretty well.

What kind of machine do they use to spray the herbicide.

I just emptied the memory card in my camera... here's 19 pics of some miscellaneous freight car shots I took at Welcox during a break from work on June 9th.  The Dayliner was taken today at the Transfer Beach Rd crossing after it dropped off a bunch of kids a few hundred metres away at Transfer Beach Park.

Nice pictures of Wellcox. With all those weeds it's starting to look like Thornton yard.
