I've recently paged through this thread in its entirety, and while I find all of the images interesting, I especially like the ones showing the switching at Borden's, the ones at the BCFP mill just over the Selkirk trestle, the shot of the train in Johnson Terminal, and the ones out by Youbou.
 
Thanks very much for posting, and please don't stop!

July 5, 1989, CNR & E&N interchange, Victoria.
 
Recently serviced GMD-1 1070 and a grain load and an empty boxcar [serving as the brakes for the bad ordered grain hopper] wait on the interchange for a CN crew to take them to Point Ellice and Borden Mercantile.

January 5, 1990, CN's Saanich Spur,  [Photo by Jamie Masters ]
 
The view from the front of the GMD-1 1070, making the CNR's last run to Borden Mercantile.
 
The engine is about to cross the small trestle at the end of Brett Avenue, the Saanich Rd crossing is just up the tracks.
