What year was this pic taken in?

 
Sometime between 1980 and 1984. Hmm, so the 1002 DID work the Victoria operation. I guess CN rotated power between Deerholme and Victoria.

Whoa, looks like someone swiped a numberboard off the 1070. Those tracks were in such a horrendous condition. In the video that was shown at the club meeting the 1070 did a lot of bobbing up and down and rocking from side to side.

Ogden Point was separate from the rest of the CN network on Vancouver Island. The tracks were put in to serve the grain elevators. They went all over the dockyard.  Often, instead of barging the train over to Ogden Point, a phone call to the right person at BCER and they could take a short cut down BCER tracks. When the GE yard switchers showed up in 1958 two were kept at Pt. Ellice, with one being used out at Ogden Point, and the third loco was up at Cowichan Bay. CN sold the Ogden Point operation in 1987, and it shut down not long after.

Can anyone tell me how this lift bridge was operated?  Where the controls were?  When I took this, there were tires and all sort of junk jammed up in the hinge mechanism.

It was an "strong-arm"mechanism that raised and lowered the bridge. The Bridge operator would clean the crap out and crank the bridge down by hand. In 1996, when the CRD was restoring the bridge for the Galloping Goose, a worker was injured trying to turn the crank to lower the bridge, the bridge went so far, and then "crashed" down into the position it's in now, just about ripping the guy's arm off.

An e-mail correspondence garnished a couple of E&N and CNR pics from a gentleman in Arizona.  These were taken by his late father.
