I think I got this around 1985 at Beaver Cove.  Found it in an old album.

Nice picture Piglet. Nice to see an old one of the yellow paint still in rule.
 
I was at Beaver Cove today (July 19, 2007) and got a picture of 303. I went around Beaver Cove and down to Woss and never saw a single working train . Oh well, at least I saw some engines  .

When I went down to Woss I saw 302 sitting in the back of the yard.

And one of the engines I came up here for.....113. It doesn't look too bad for being out in the open for years. Hope they do something with it soon.

Also, that old snowplow or whatever it is is still sitting there so I guess they haven't decided what to do with it.

Great pictures, Balto. Good to see that some of the stuff CLC fan posted a while back that looked like scrap hasn't gone away yet.  
I hope somebody can save it.

Wow, Balto, I am jealous that you got to go up Island.  Did you go there for some volunteering work with your family, or was the trip just for you?
 
Good pics, esp. the steamer.

Thank you. Actually, it was for a bit of sad news. My grandmother passed away so we went up for the funeral. But we stayed up for a few more days and did a bit of touring around. Today when I went back to Beaver Cove to find #6 (which I did find, pictures in Locomotives of Vancouver Island thread) I caught 301 and 304 refueling in the yard. So I got some quick snap shots before racing for the beach to catch the tide (before it took #6 away beneath the waves again  ). Here's 301.

Thanks guys. They went on strike?  . Well.......didn't see that coming. Well.......*ackward silence*........did you get any pictures  . One thing that did make a little light for me in the loss of are grandmother. When I saw my grandad, he told me that one of his neighbors has a bunch of old film of the logging operation up there from years back. He just has to get a new light bulb for his camera and he will show them to me  .

You JUST got there in time.  Apparently, the union is saying that the strike will be a long one.

I lucked out on my last run to Calgary and got a copy of "The last logging road" by Chandos video.   This is a recent production as the engines are all in silver (the rebuilts) and they cover everything from the side hill right down to the water.  They cover bringing the logs off the hill to the reload and then how they run the trains down to Beaver Cove.
I honestly think its a more well rounded production then the Pentrex one of a decade or so ago.  They have some historical footage and some recent footage of Mayo 3 as well.  If you really didn't know the how and why this show would answer your questions.  The idea of "scaling" is covered during the reload section and the video footage is well done and clear.  Both of us have really enjoyed watching this video and my partner can't wait to go spend some time up there to really look over the area.  Their web site is WWW.trainson tv.com and I though over all it was really well done.

I walked a bit further along it.  The trestle is about 6 or 7 metres high at this point.

How was your stay at Morton Lake, did the pictures of the old trestle,s there turn out.

I couldn't resist another pic of #303 in its classic colours.

CLC thanks for the pics.  303 is still looking good in the old paint.  I didn't know they were doing some cutting up there  by the sort at Beaver Cove, when did that start?

Hi TFC, glad you could make it.  
 
I found the old log dump with ease, it was the trestle further on that I could not make it to due to trail conditions.  The overgrowth got bad and I didn't feel like walking up to my knees in water in certain spots.    Planning sometime next year to borrow a canoe and do some more exploring.
 
Here's the log dump:

I just realized that you had posted the pictures you took while you were at Morton lake. We think the pilings are from two trestles that crossed the lake at that point, the original would have been built by Lamb Lumber Co. When Bloedel, Stewart and Welch took over the line they would have replaced the original with a new trestle built beside it. The loadout  that I mentioned is still further down the old grade. The loadout was used by Lamb Lumber when they loaded out the lake, when B.S.&W took over the grade they realigned the grade before the loadout to a new trestle across the lake so they could  log the west side of Mohun Lake. If I get up that way before spring and the water is not to high, so that I can walk the grade I will take some pictures and E-mail them to you. I sure enjoy the pictures you have posted on the Baldwin's etc.
