18. Headed north along the tracks and caught the southbound Dayliner behind the warehouses on Viewfield Rd. in Esquimalt. (View is looking south, Budd cars are moving away from me).

Awesome.......just awesome......I really don't know what to say anymore other than you're really spoiling us, Dave!! I love the shots from up on the rock of the SW setting up the northbound freight for the geep!  
 
Dayliner: thanks for the explanation, that's really cool that that all happened here! I think I was born in the wrong era.....

Dave, I must say... those  are my  favorite  sequence  shots  on this whole forum so far.. its like magic.. tkaes me  right back.. seems most of the northbounds around that time were about 8-10 cars long.  Mustve been summer as  I see the water car. I miss how the car shop was actually functional back then.  A real railroad.  and a  tiny yard!(same goes for albion yard)   I recall in the mid 80s that most northbounds left around 6 ish..   I lived in langford and they came throo pretty much 6 30 on the dot. Guess that wouldve gave them time to switch vic plywood in between. Sometimes they would switch vanisle  moulding in langford on a northbound trip!!! that included a 'flying switch' move. I watched that happen a couple times.  Then they might switch the big warehous off jacklin road.. I cant rememebr the name of what it was back then even though my uncle was a  warehouse manager at the time.. Funny.. he  used to mention at family dinners  about them getting a  few boxcars at the time and I regret not asking him more about it  or bieng down there more often to watch them come in . Im sure he  couldve granted me a more upclose view from inside the loading docks.. shooot.

pardon the quality of some of my shots.. wasnt much of a photog.  This is a short sequence of a northbound throo view royal in 1990. Train was 12 cars. Many of the early 90s vic turns were longer than in the 80s! Some of you guys may recall.. Corfton spur.. you lived in langford around then, im sure you can concur.. I d  see trains as  long as 18 cars... Longer if they had some of the flats used for the army moves.

That makes sense - 3 units for Port Alberni turns, 1 unit Wellcox/Nanaimo switcher, 2 Victoria Turn, 2 spare
