Actually, the middle unit is a GP 35,  The 30's had the odd shaped cab roof and 500x (probably 5009) has the same cab design as the 38's do.

CP only had 2 such GP-30 units, 5000 & 5001; originally numbered 8200 & 8201 when new in 1963 and were renumbered in 1965.
Note the curved cab roof lines and the dynamic brake extends from the cab roof and is not a separate blister.

Yes, your are right, I checked with Trevor, I surmised that it was a GP 30 because of another picture that was in the same box of slides. It is terrible when you can't see like you once could. I will post the picture with the GP 30 later.

Im an ex View Royalite and island roamer.  Rode the Victoria Pacific and all.  
Used to climb on box cars on the tracks opposite the Nanaimo station after walking down there from my grandmothers house.  And I remember some of the track work and stuff at Union Bay as well when we used to run up to work on our boat before we brought it down island.  Rode the Hillcrest engines when they were still working at the mill.

I grew up in Royston, just below the Water tank and Station, the CC(D) railway was in front the house, Comox Logging log cars from Comox lake were parked in front of the house before they were switch down to the log dump. We use to play on the box cars behind the house. Used to play on the section crews little flat cars at Union Bay before all the tracks were tore up. Have also rode the Victoria Pacific should have pictures of that somewhere. I have been to Elbe, Washington a few time to ride behind Hillcrest,s # 10.

An  interesting picture, it must be Sunday, it shows the Engineer starting is shift for the week, he is walking up the side of the car with his bags. I believe the Conductor changes on Saturday in the Nanaimo.

I've gotten lazy recently and have posted anything for a couple of months, so here's a set of shots that picks up where I left off. These were taken on a very sunny Jan. 1, 1986 with the first 3 showing some boxcars in the Albion yard and the rest showing track removal around the yard in Vic West. Cheers,
 
Dave
