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

6 GP-38's, 2 GP-35's.  Strange not to see a high-hood GP-7/9 or switcher........

By the time we got the 38's & 35's over here, unrebuilt GP9s were becoming very rare.  Also, what would be the point of keeping a SW at Welllcox.  Can't use if for anything else whereas a GP could be used as a spare if needed

Nice shots, Torch, especially the View Royal ones. I never did photograph anything around there. Here's a few shots of a northbound freight taken on July 11, 1985.

4. Here it comes. It appears the 2 boxcars originally behind the locomotive have been switched out before reaching Langford.

Nice shots Dave.
 
The yard was sure busy even in '85.
 
It sad to see the roundhouse today, just sit and rot. It seems more and more unlikely that it will be used for a rail museum. The developer is wanting to turn it into a False Creek type joint with mostly commerical and a   "rail interpretation centre" . The E&N corridor is to be preserved for future commuter rail use.
 
here is the link to that project.

. Wonder where that lumber wouldve come from? Maybe the bcfp mill on the CN line?

 
Could it have been from the mill in Langford, were they still active at that time? What year did that mill burn down? It would make sense if they switched it going south and hauled the load north.

3 GP35's, 5009 in the middle has the snowshields that the GP38AC's also had..remaining unrebuilt GP9's, of which there were only a handful left, were all transferred east in 1989 prior to rebuilding. I think 8617 was the last one in the lower mainland.

5. Grass and weeds have been cut around the passenger car in preparation for it to be interchanged over to CN and sent to Vancouver on their barge (have more photos of this in upcoming rolls).
