13. When arriving back in Victoria, I found a northbound freight made up and ready to depart.

Nice,Dave!  My fave shots  are  the  ones  with the  frieght leaving vic.. I like the caboose shot too. Many of us  never  focused on the  caboose. Wonder where that lumber wouldve come from? Maybe the bcfp mill on the CN line?

Nice pics Dave,
 
I especially like the shots of the yard. This would have been a couple of years before they re-aligned the main line and Songhees Rd. By this time, most if not all of the industries on the Songhees were gone. I could be wrong.

Those are all great shot as usual.  That is the great thing about this group is how good and how rare all the shots are.
When they were still using the concrete cube I was visiting my sister who lived in the area and walked over and peaked into the stalls of the roundhouse and was suprised to find each stall had a passenger car in it. I don't know of them actually being used for anything and I would guess they could be some of the cars that wound up on BC Rail eventually.  Im at a lose to remember just what year it was but when your world only has dayliners in it to find passenger cars hiding in the shop is a real suprise.

I'm starting to feel like a broken record, but I'm going to say it anyways........great pictures Dave!! They are all great, I think pic #16 was my fave from that last set, don't see many like that.  
I have another question though, why would CN interchange the bulkheads w/lumber over to the E&N? Where were they going that CN couldn't ship them out on their own barge?

Great pictures, Dave and Moka.  My fave is prbably Moka's second Thetis shot--nice to see what kind of fright cars were running back then, and in a very pastoral setting--sweet.  I had left the Island by the time of your pictures, so I really appreciate seeing what was around in the early 90s.  Thanks for sharing.
 
And Dave, your shot of the fright about to leave Victoria is an eye-opener--I had forgotten what a great mix of traffic you could still see back then.

vicguy, I believe both Victoria Pylwood and BCFP had reciprocal switching agreements with both railways.  Switch lists from that era show CN would deliver CP cars to BCFP for loading, and then haul them back to the interchange for forwarding over CP.  Similarly, the E&N would deliver CN cars to VicPly and then run them back to the CN at Victoria.  Of course, both shippers also had the option of using their "home" road.  Larger shippers had that kind of leverage, and having some competition kept the railways honest!

boxcar, that coach was at that time CP 411526, assigned to the Victoria auxilliary.  It's an old colonist car, ex-CP 2514, built in 1905, and is now part of the WCRA collection in Squamish, where it has been restored.

Here's a set of photos taken on July 7, 1985 showing the day's activities.

4. Over to the Store St. Albion yard to see a little switching. (I posted these previously on the Store St. thread but have included them again here for continuity).
