vic west again.. early 90s. Look at all the  propane tankers in the yard, The attempts at unloading propane at the loading dock proved unsuccessful when they realized there was no unloading lading rack.  lol   See the old  clay slurry hoppers  next to the car shop?  I remember the  day when those finally left victoria on a northbound.

Great pics Torch, it looks like you've got the scanner all figured out. The photo looking down from the hill at the end of the yard is one angle I wish I'd have shot from more. Thanks for posting.

Nice pics of Buckerfields Torch...my dad worked there for a few years, when he worked there boxcars with grain were starting to come in smaller numbers replaced by more and more hoppers, the job of finishing unloading a boxcar was left for the kid with the after school job! I once saw a CP boxcar half full of bran, it looked like compacted sawdust! Buckerfields continued to receive boxcars right up until the switch was taken out but the contents were bags of finished products like beet pulp, dog food, and fertilizer, another interesting thing was if you purchased a carload of products through Buckerfields they would arrange for CP to spot it at the nearest siding for you to unload, my brother in law who is a farmer had CP boxcars of fertilizer and bale twine spotted at Cobble Hill siding on several occasions.

Actually that is a very cool pic.
 

 
I also agree that it's a great photo. Really captures something with that mix of rolling stock. Thanks so much for posting, Moka.
