Great photos Tyler! Looking at these will inspire me to get out and start shooting again with my new camera. With the trees being cut down along the road by the yard it opens up new photo angles along the side looking down.

The siding is in the south end of town.  South switch is near where the steam locomotive is on display & north switch was removed years ago by CP

This must have been an afternoon move.  The train is facing north "waiting for the dayliner" so that would be about 15:45 - 16:00, since the guys are in the cab and not at the golf course club house having coffee.
 
In the background, you can see some wires...  Henry Road.  The Arbutus tree behind the hoppers is the Haul Road; between the Haul Road & Henry Road was  where the steam locomotive's roundhouse was (where the dirt parking lot is now).

Thanks for the clarification on street names - I know where I'm going there but I'll be darned if I know street names.

Good Lord. Clean ballast on the yard tracks. No weeds! It's a miracle.

Hey Torch,
 
I presume with your new scanner you got some photo editing software, most have some basic stuff that comes with them.  After scanning, use the "crop" function to cut off all the blank space around the photo, save the new shape, then use the "resize" feature to blow it up to a max of 900 by 600 pixels, then resave it, as a jpg of course,  to post on the forum.  Should show up right on the thread without a thingy to click on.
 
Hope this helps.  If you knew all this already, you can tell me to shut my jaw  , and I will buy you a coffee  .

I think I got it now.. Anyways, this pic is the vic west yard in january 91.  Note the boxcars at the unloading dock..im pretty sure this is what had become of the albion yard when they tore it up and just moved a dock to vic west. Am I correct? anyhow, this was around 9 am or so after the budd went north and you can see the nanaimo bound train on the siding waiting for the power to couple onto it . The switch crew had made up the train as was usual after they did their other vic chores. Once I watched the northbound frieght leave the yard PUSHING a railbox bocar infront of the lead loco What an odd sight but they pushed it into the standard furniture spur only a km or so north .
