These next photos are at the Nimpkish spur where there seems to be carshops and and engine shop.   In addition there is the #303, several crew cars, log flats, and a ballast regulator stored there.

The 303 at Nimpkish.   The engine is tarped but looks serviceable.

It would be cool to see the crew cars out on the road.    The chain drive looks goofy but simple and effective.

A switch at siding 3 constructed fully of steel ties.   The E and N could sure use something like these ties.

The next pics are at the 'Camp A' reload spur.   I wouldn't have got anywhere near this on a working day.

For the details.   Note the cable securing the car during loading.

Ballast cars at Camp A.   They must of been barged to Beaver Cove from their glory days on CN.

I encountered yet another parked train at Siding 6.   Caboose, cars, but no engines.
 
More and more log flats.............they are everywhere up here!

Yet another caboose at Woss with crew car in the background.   The steam engine was rusting away close by but it was getting late and I had to hit the road.   I never saw the diesels.   They were either indoors in the engine shop (I didn't take a picture) at Nimpkish camp, or they were out at Vernon, or they passed me by.   The office looked very closed and no-one seemed to be working anywhere.

Well,
 
The Canfor Englewood Logging Division logging railway as found on December 20th, 2005.   An awesome sight.   I will be back up sometime to have another look, and will be hoping to see it all in motion.
 
It definitely looks like it is still going strong.
 
A final pic:    Detail of steel ties.   A great idea for our soggy weather.   I wonder if they ride rough?

Definately some great shots and you're right, the condition of the line puts the E&N to shame. According to the worker I rode with a few years back, track conditions used to be much worse with frequent derailments and the company had to essentially decide to either refurbish the line or rip it out. Obviously they decided to maintain it.  
 
I'm hoping to get my video of the line, along with the Port Sub, edited and available early in the New Year.
 
Cheers.

I'm sure most of you know already, but Canfor has sold its Englewood Logging Division to Western Forest Products. This is part of an arrangement between Canfor, Western Forest Products and Japans' Oji Paper Canada. Excellent pictures by the way.  http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/December2005/15/c1332.html
