Here's a few shots taken around the yard on Nov. 4, 1985.

 
What was a BCR caboose ever doing on the Island? This wouldn't happen to be the caboose that is in Saanich now is it?

Can't say 100% but I'd bet money on it.  As far as I know the BCOL van that went ot Saanich was hauled to end of track of the Saanich Spur & loaded onto a flatbed there for the rest of the trip to it's current home

May i copy and paste that caboose photo on a BCR yahoo group?  With proper credit to the photographer.  By the way who is the photographer? Nice job by the way.  These photos are amazing.
 
Thanks, Craig

Hi Craig, thanks for the compliment. You're welcome to repost the photo if you want. It was taken by me, Dave Royston.

SW8 7154 at Ogden Point, March 1972.  This unit was on the Island for many years and I believe closed out Ogden Point as a CN operation.
