The yard is probably filling up because they won't take the empties back.   just kidding...
 
Crofton, yes those three cars are where Columbia Fuels receives its loads.
 
But behind all those freight cars, the yard is half empty...

 
 
Looks like Glen yard in Vancouver, empty.

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.

Great pix as usual, CLC Fan. Nice to see Wellcox so busy - its been a while since it looked like that. Is this because of a rail ferry problem?

dont know about a  ferry problem   but this has  more to do with the  30 percent traffic increase. (that number is from SRVI 's mouth, not mine)

I'm crossin my fingers that SRY keeps finding new customers and maybe finds something south of the 'hat. And wouldn't it be kewl if they found a reason to run over the hump? That'd be something. Hell, send us another Geep!

Mmmm, boxcars. Is there anything they can't do?
 
I concur with Torch, boxcars are just interesting, and you don't see them very often anymore so it would be nice to see some.

Where's that cement being used? Victoria? or all over the Island? If it's being used in Victoria it might make sense to move it south by rail to avoid winter weather conditions on the Malahat, not to mention the occasional road blockage by an overturned propane tank truck....
It would certainly be good to see more traffic moving beyond Welcox on the E&N, but one step at a time, I guess. What's happening is certainly good news. How long before Welcox needs a switcher just for the barge so that 110/119 are kept available for the main line?

I totally agree with you guys about the boxcars. They used to be the bread and butter of the railways, now they're not as common. Nothing makes a railway feel like a railway more than boxcars.
 
It would be great to see them on the Island.

I think a daily sand/gravel train would make me happier than a string of boxcars. Hopefully somebody on the island has the know how to bring it all together.

I caught the Duncan turn northbound today beneath the powerlines north of Duncan.   I almost missed the train due to being stopped by a flagperson waving a tree-chipper across the road ahead of me but was happy when I was let through just in time to snap this pic.
