Wow! Thanks for those photos, tfctrains. I didn't know that 1239 was on the island in the past.

I think I counted 32+ tank cars, most of them loaded.

Wow that is a lot of tank cars.
 
This must represent some income for the railway. Too bad they couldn't transload at points closer to the trucks' final destinations...

Man it is nice to see things like that(as in pictures depicting things that could have been anytime in the last 50 years) in almost 2008!  An RDC at speed, on a snow covered "branchline"...good to know that things are still right with the world in some little corners of it!

Great picture! That's a lot of snow it's throwing in all directions. If it's throwing that much snow down there, what happened when it got to you?

Great pictures, Frank and Richard. I didn't notice any hoppers in Richards photos, thats possibly the first photo of Wellcox I've seen like that.
 
Bring back the pole car sets too!

I missed the best shot as it hit the windrow of snow at the crossing, for some reason that picture didn't turn out, about that time I was starting to run.

Royston is about 4 miles south of Courtenay,  the end of the line. There is sometimes more snow on the north end than the south end.

Thank you, poles are still stocked piled at Courtenay so there is hope, I understand that the poles were being shiped back east, when the cars returned from east maybe Ex CPR 7069 could be loaded on the idler flats and be returned to Island.

Hey Crash, how'd you get this shot? I would think a bit of a hike?
