The 113 is mentioned a few time under this subject.  Here is a photo of the 113 out on the mainline when she was taken out of retirement to help celebrate CFP's 50th anniversary.

A day in the Nimpkish Valley on November 5, 2007 provided an encounter with a loaded log train on Steele Creek bridge, M24.1, at 9:09 in the morning.  The MU'd engines are usually at this location, but they were in the Nimpkish shops overnight north of their usual tie-up location at Camp A requiring the 302 to deliver its loads further north than usual in the morning.  The 302 exchanged its train of logs with empties delivered by the 301/304 during a meet at Camp A some time later.

Later in the day on November 5, 2007, the 302 is starting on its last task of the day at 03:18 PM.  After supplying Woss and Maquilla reloads with empties from the train swap in the morning, the 302 has a clearance to the "South Cautionary Limits Woss" and is leaving Maquilla crossing Maquilla Creek at M50.2 of the K line.  The loads will be stored overnight at Siding 6 at M35.6 to be taken north the following work day for another meet with the 301/304.

Now the railway is short of horsepower that is needed to get the planned 50 car train to the beach.  The 304 is going it alone until a mechanic arrives to tend to the errant 301.

 
50 cars? Good to see at least one railway on the island is hauling some heavy tonnage.

This photo shows an interesting maneuver at 12:00 noon.  Moments before, the 304 shoved the 301 up Track 2.  After the locomotives were separated, the 304 moved into position on Track 1 behind the standby caboose.  Once the 304 was in the clear, the brakes on the 301 were released allowing it coast down the slight incline until it cleared the switch making it possible for the 304 to get into the position necessary for the move to the shop.  Soon the 304 will be pulling its 35 loads north with the quiet 301 in the lead.

Here is a train of 30 loads approaching the Halfway Island Cut that bypassed the trestle at M12.9 .  The train is on the track that can be seen in the foreground of tfctrain's photo.  You can watch the same train passing through the cut on YouTube.

The date is April 9, 2007.

This photo shows the same train passing through the cut.  The approach to the bypassed trestle was located at the straight section of track in the background.

Last weekend I made an unscheduled trip to the north Island for a bit of business and pleasure.  I spent the better part of monday exploring and snagging roster pics of 200+ log cars and a few work cars so I missed most of the days action.  I did chase the last train on its way to Beaver Cove and took mostly video due to low light conditions.  I've put up 3 or 4 vids so far (not impressed w/ YouTube's compression techniques) and still have 3 more to put up in the next few days.  Search "CLCfan" or "Canfor" should help find them quick.
 
By the way, anyone check out "brakeman302"'s videos?  He has a pretty neat one taken underneath a passing log train:

Looking forward to your YouTube posts, CLC Fan.  
 
I presume your photo of the 303 was taken at Beaver Cove.  Can't decide where the locie is sitting or what the car is behind it.  I don't remember seeing that rust spot a year ago when it was switching at Beaver Cove when the attached photo was taken May 9, 2007.

I film at 640x480 @ 30 fps and a 60 second film clip is approx 120+ MB.  YouTube has an upload limit of 100 MB.  I use DivX Converter (similar to what YouTube uses to convert vids) to try and get it down a bit in file size.  Unfortunately, after uploading YouTube compresses it again which just slaughters the resolution further.  I'm still experimenting with it and hope to find an improvement over what I have been uploading.
 
As for #303, yes that's Beaver Cove.  Here's a pic of what's behind it:

Looks a little forlorn, tucked into the bushes like that.
 
Very nice set of pics!  Love the one of the "cut".
