Back in the UK now. Noticed a mowing machine parked at Cobble Hill on ...... guess it must have been 11 June. Nice piece of kit, capable of cutting a wide swathe both sides of the ROW. Couldn't see anywhere it had been used though, but have you noticed that the 'meadows' in my shots of Top Shelf have since been mown? Pity, there were nice California Poppies on the trackside there!  
Looks to me like the broom dies from the top OK with the herbicide - Cobble Hill looks very dead in the four-foot now.

Here are a few pictures of the Budd car just south of Humpback Road approaching Langford lake last Sunday.

I've posted a lot of the photos I took on the island last month on my magazine's website www.model-rail.com
This is NOT an advert it won't cost a penny to look - just saves me posting them again.  
If you're into modelling you might find something useful in the Top Shelf pictures. There's also a set of E&N stations and some stuff at the Forest Museum.

JasonK-> Nice pictures, and I love your camera, I could tell by looking at it that you were using one like mine.  I am hoping to upgrade to that model eventually.  I bought the one below it (the 5 MP version) last summer just as the black one was being promoted... but the black is cooler looking. heheh.

 
Yes, the Canon S3. Great camera, love it and it shoots excellent video as well but the 12x zoom is the main selling point for me which is often critical for rail fanning. I'd go DSLR but the cameras are just too bulky for my liking.
 
The S3 is going for a pretty good price these days as the S5 was just released.
 
Cheers.

Yes, the optical zoom (x10) is a big reason why I bought the S3, and for the very same reasons you mention.  The DSLR's are coming down in price but too serious for my useage.

 
Actually it's 12x, not 10x
 
I used to shoot with SLR's back in the "film days" but don't need that now.

The mowing machine parked at Cobble Hill on 11 June. I guess this machine must have the double distinction of being the smallest 'locomotive' on the E&N and the largest lawnmower on Vancouver Island?

I was over in Victoria for work last week and a I snagged a few photos and a couple videos of the Dayliner. On the 23rd, I found 6133 and 6148 being cleaned at the roundhouse after their daily run.

Here's a video I shot of 6133 and 6148 on the evening of July 27th at the Admiral's Road crossing in Esquimalt. I was on my bike, and after that I raced down to see if I could catch them again closer to downtown. They'd already made it to the station, but I shot a video of them crossing the Johnson Street bridge quite slowly on the way back to the roundhouse. Not the greatest video, with people in the foreground talking. But if there's any interest, I'll post it also. Let me know.

Caught the Dayliner in Nanaimo on July 15. Anyone know the history of that big dent on 6133? (6133's lower right corner)
