Those are truly great pictures. Still amazed how busy the yard was in the late 80s.

Damn CP for killing this railway!! So my favorite shots from this set are 10, 13 and the roster shots of 8839. Very cool, thanks Dave

I'm trying to figure out what angle/where pic #2 was taken from.
 
Was there once 4 tracks curving around the hill behind the roundhouse toward downtown? There are two tracks there now, and the 'siding' never gets any use anymore.

I think you're right, if you look to the far right of pics 5 and 6 you can see the boxcars from picture 2

Yes guys, there were 4 tracks curving around the hill. 2 of them were removed in the late '80's.

the yard after the roundhouse was removed in I think 89 when they realigned Songhees Rd. It was then realigned as well with only the mainline and siding remaining. This was in preparation of the residential developments in the songhees.

88 or 89 seem right.  By that time there was little industry left in Victoria that shipped by rail and the other tracks were not needed.  The old coach yatd left enough storage space and all that was needed was the passing track

Hello everybody.  Does anyone have pics of the Arbutus Canyon bridge they could share.  Strangely, what I really need is pictures of the land around the bridge, like the river and surrounding landscape so i can model the canyon and the bridge.  I have a few good pics of the bridge but have no idea what it looks like in the canyon it's self.  Now that I think of it I need the same for the Niagara Canyon.  Thanks, Craig
