Thanks!
 
There is a nice lookout along Somenos Road.   Go north from Duncan and take the left off the highway onto Somenos Rd (at the bottom of the curved hill on the highway) and back-track a few kilometers until you pass over the tracks again.
 
 
The location of pic is directly under the hydro-line right of way

That's a really pretty picture - one to print off for the wall of the railway room, I think. If you don't mind.

With the curve & trees, how long is the train?  50? 100 cars?

You mean you didn't hear Top Shelf expanded business? SRVI's running 100 car unit grain trains with a pair of GP9's.

I forgot to mention those units were in pusher service on the end of a 95 car movement of Llama feed pellets.

Two pictures of the old interlocking tower that was relocated to the former museum site at Ladysmith.  The building had just been refurbished and was torched shortly after this picture was taken.

Does anyone know how the diamond was operated? What I mean is, was it a CLoR or a CPR employee that threw the signals, or both?  Who ultimately owned the building while it was in service?

Wild guess here, but I would assume it was probably a similar arrangement to Clayburn- Normal lined for CP and CL&R crew would throw the signals before proceeding.

The Diamond tower restoration was being done by the Ladysmith rotary club and as you can see by the pictures there were doing a first class job of it. They had all the windows in before it was vandalized. When the town anounced they were evicting the society from the site a fellow who was not a member of the society was upset at the town for evicting the society whent and smashed all the windows in the shop and the tower. He was caught and that was his explanation, how that helped the society is beyond me.After that the kids got into and like the rail cars down there they set fire to it.A real shame. In Turners logging by rail page 184 it shows John Auer operating the levers and Iam pretty shure he worked for crown z. The levers are in town on display on first avenue and most of the semaphores are still in existance. The oil lamps I have never seen them and Iam looking for some if anybody knows were they can get some, they were maintained and lit up untill 1984 when rail logging was ended.

cool pics, T.  and  you are not insane for that. you are more insane for being a railfan who decided to work for a major railroad!  lol  I remember  when you used to post on this board about wanting to work for the e&n so its only natural that you go  to nanaimo for fotos. at least CN hasnt stripped away your railfan spirit! keep it up!
