I am interested in learning and preserving the history of the railway on Vancouver Island. With a lot of the History taken away we must work hard to insure our kids have the ability to watch and ride the rails we have left and enjoy seeing so much.

A young fan from Kansas City requested to see my footage of the log train pull with the 113 that was staged for Pentrex during 1991.

Seemed like a good day to stand in the rain in the Nimpkish Valley.
 
WFI crews were busy trying to clear a back-log of loaded log cars sitting at various locations on the claim so there were opportunities to not only get drenched in typical Nimpkish Valley squalls but to some great train watching in as well.
 
Here the 301 at the "Tank Farm crossing" is delivering empties to the Woss reload at 06:34 in the morning.

The rain took a break on June 24th just as the 302/304 arrived at the Nimpkish Shop spur at 08:31 AM with a string of empties for Camp A.
 
There are no meets at Siding 4 these days.  The 302/304 spend the day shift between the cove and Camp A while the 301 tends to the south end from Siding 6 to Vernon leaving the loads at Siding 6 at the end of the day where they are picked up by the MU'd pair running the night shift.

I am interested in any information on the crew rail buses especially number 123 and it companion car.  I am interested in any information that you can provide.  I am looking to build a 1/8 scale model of the crew cars if I can get enough information.

if i remember corectly in the book "Logging By Rail" by Robert D. Turner,
There is a very detailed diagram of a crew bus or "crummie".
All of his Rail Road Books are worth getting. West of the great Divide, and Vancouver Island railroads are both excellent.

I will be visiting the island the week of September 28 th and was curious if the log trains are still running on the same schedule as described in June.  Thank you in advance for any responses.
 
regards
