I was up in the north Island this weekend.  All is quiet up there.  Found #301 parked in the evening heat at Woss and the yard tracks covered in grass.  There are 3 loaded strings of log cars at Camp-A Reload.  I didn't swing by Beaver Cove and due to the shut down did not spend anytime hunting for rail activity.  I did hear that they may reactivate this week for a short undetermined time.

Spent the day on the side roads near Woss arriving at Markusen Crossing, M31.25, in time to catch the 301/304 heading south with a short train of empties heading for Siding 6.  There was no morning meet today at Siding 4.  The 302 was sent to Vernon first thing in the morning.  The MUed pair were to leave their train of empties at Siding 6 and travel light engine to the Woss reload to pick up loads.

The 301/304 have passed Siding 6 and are stopped on the Gold Creek bridge preparing to shove the empties into the siding just out of site around a curve to the right.

The empties have been left in the siding and the engines are proceeding over Gold Creek bound for the Woss reload.

Who can resist following abandoned rails through the trees to see what is at the other end?
 
This abandoned track is off-road near the Maquilla reload south of Woss.  The rail is approx. 56 pounds.  No markings indicate the weight, but it is identified as Cammells Toughened Steel, 1892, Sec 236, Canadian Pacific.

Here is a quick look for those who like to see such things.  Who can resist following rails through the trees to see what is at the other end?
 
No doubt it doesn't really warrant posting so I will remove it in a few days.  This abondon track is off-road near the Maquilla reload south of Woss.  The rail is approx. 56 pounds.  No markings indicate the weight, but it is identified as Cammells Toughened Steel, 1892, Sec 236, Canadian Pacific.

 
Interesting. Did they appear to have joined with the mainline at any point in time? Also, where did they end up?

Remember how Captain Kirk always liked to take along a "disposable ensign" during expeditions.  It this case, we needed bear bait.
 
Hard hat?  I guess rules are made to be broken.  Hey, he has a high vis. vest on.  That is 50% compliant!

The rails paralleled the mainline for some distance to the south passing a rotting building and eventually swinging towards the existing grade. To the north, the tracks lead to what looked like an old wash-out with ties and rails scattered about.  Suspect the wash-out forced a grade relocation.

Yo Sidewinder,
 
Similar situation with SCUBA divers. The least experienced, and usually the youngest is always called " Shark Bait".

Somewhere I have photos from the summer of 2006 from Camp A and Beaver Cove dry sort. If I can find them, I'll post them.

Not long after leaving the empties at Siding 4, the 301 and 304 begin their journey to the beach with 46 loads in tow.  The engines are passing over Twin Bridge, M27.3, at 12:33 October 27, 2008.

Nice pics, Sidewinder.  I just got back from 3 days of backpacking up at Cape Scott.  I was hoping to spend 2 days railfanning but could only accomodate one.  Turns out when the train was at the south end, I was at the north end and vice-versa.    I went up and down the Nimpkish Valley -5- times! and each time missed the train.. ugh!  I added more roster shots to my collection and did some late night train chasing from Storey Creek all the way up to Markusen's crossing.  I waited for it at Gold Creek but it never showed.  I still have yet to catch (daylight) action on the south half of the line.
 
#302 is at Woss.  #303 in classic colours has been moved to Nimpkish shops as shown in the pic below.  #301 and 304 were earning their keep on the mainline.

Thanks!
 
5 times, huh.  You certainly are determined!  Can't understand why nothing showed at Gold Creek.  You should have seen the engines on the bridge switching Siding 6.  Perhaps they delivered empties to the siding and returned north light engines.  In any case, luck was not on your side.
 
The 303 was in the shop late October being serviced to provide back up for the 302 at Woss.  Surprised it is still at Nimpkish.
 
Here is a photo of the train featured a few replies ago with the string of 54 empties passing over Storey Creek bridge Oct 27, 2008.

Neat photo. Looks like they haven't relettered the 303 yet.

Always thought it would be nice to get an action shot it the snow.  Pretty tough to do when the railway is shutdown!  MTs wait patiently for a locomotive to appear at the south end of siding 4, Jan. 21/09.

The Englewood Railway has been back in business the past few weeks with one reload in operation.  Loads have been hauled from Woss reload all the way to the beach using only one engine. Today (Feb. 23), as luck would have it, an MUed pair were on the run.  The 301 and 304 are the regular team but this time the 302 is trailing with the 304 sitting it out at the Nimpkish shops.  After starting the day at Beaver Cove switching the sort, the train has arrived at Storey Creek bridge at 09:21 with empties bound for Woss.
