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

I believe it was from an altercation with a gravel truck.  6133 was a parts donor for a while and one end was traded with 6148 (that actually hit the gravel truck)

I went down to check out Welcox yard today to see what's new.  Caught the crew doing some switching.  Here I caught them using the old caboose/scale house lead which I haven't seem them do before.  I grabbed a couple of shots and went to switch to video but my battery died.  D'oh!  Anyways, you should have heard those wheels screaming... and you could smell the metal.  The brakeman had to hug the side of the hopper to clear the trees on the left.

Thanks CLC Fan. That's interesting that you were there also on Monday evening. I went up on the hill behind the roundhouse as well, interesting vantage point, but the light was really bright behind the Dayliners, so it wasn't condusive to the greatest photos. From the right side though, I really like the evening light.

I believe the dent is from the tree it hit back in 2000. When they fixed the damaged end on 6148, they actually rebuilt it with new steel.

The Victoria Sub does seem to be a target rich environment.  (Dayliner vs. trees, gravel trucks, other vehicular traffic that is)

Does anyone have a photo of the Tailer Train depressed center flat that showed up with transformers from time to time?
 
Thanks, Craig

Looks like they covered up one of the windows. Must be for the Wheelchair accessible washroom.

Wheelchair accessible washroom? I thought wheelchair users weren't even able to board the train in their chairs. Or have they fixed that as well?

Hi All,
 
Many states now have laws which require subways, trolleys, LRV's, buses, to be handicapped friendly and have all their facilities accessible to handicapped persons. I have seen buses with elevators for allowing a wheelchair access from streetlevel to the floor of the bus. Subways and LRV's have ramps for such access as well. Long overdue.

Once they are on the train they can use the wheelchairs. Boarding the train, the disabled person would most likely have to be carried up the stairs, I believe the doors are too narrow for a wheelchair.  
 
    BTW, 6133 and 6134 were given wheelchair accessible washrooms when they were overhauled in the early 1990's.

I guess the only way to have a truly accessible RDC is to take an rdc-2 or 3 and put an onboard lift at the Cargo door.

Didn't IRSI do that with their demo car, the 6202?

Lots of cars in the yard. Now it only needs some more engines.

Time for some "classic" E&N.  RDC2 9103 northbound at Cowichan Station on August 26, 1977.  My mother took the picture as the train slowed to let me on for a trip to Nanaimo.

That's a nice picture.  Makes my current one pale by comparison.

 
I don't know about that, CLC Fan.  I'm sure liking the look of that full yard these days.

Are those tankers on the far right of that second to last photo the ones for Columbia fuels?
