After dropping off some of the empties at Siding 3 (about 1 km behind the train) the train pulls out for Camp-A.

Building the next train.  I followed them back down as far as Siding-3 when I terminated the chase due to darkness and rain, and a full memory card.  I didn't get home until after midnight... ugh. Long day.

Great pictures, Sidewinder and I were up there last week, it was also midnight when I got home. It hard to leave the Nimpkish Valley!

Well, at long last and after numerous tries I finally got to chase a train.    I spent the afternoon exploring and chasing a train from Beaver Cove to Camp-A Reload and then back to Siding 3 when it finally got too dark and I ran out of space on my memory card.
 
Here's the train leaving Beaver Cove with a load of empties.

Nice!  So you finally got to the right place at the right time.  Really like the photo showing the train leaving the cove.
 
We visited Maquilla a few days ago.  Here the 301 arrives on the run-around track with a string of empties for the reload.

I was sorting through a bunch of old videos last night, that someone gave me to put onto DVDs. One of them had an old news feature on the Canfor railway, made when the railroad workers were presented with an award regarding the historic nature of their way of life. I can't quite remember which historical association it was the recognized them.
 
Anyway, it was quite interesting to see the railroad, including lots of moving shots onboard the train, as well as an excursion of school students with the old 113 and commentary from two of the remaining steam engineers.

#303 seems to be tarped over and out of service for about 2 years now? It's usually parked somewhere around the Nimpkish shops.  I have pics of it there in April 2009 and it was still there on April 14, 2010 when the picture below was taken.

Tfctrains and I decided it was time for a driving tour of the Nimpkish Valley for old time's sake.  We ended up on a cross country jaunt on a bush-encroached road with minimal walking required to get to the site of the Tsulton River bridge.  Bear sign everywhere.  Had a discusssion who should be bear bait but we got back to the truck before an altercation presented itself!  I had not seen the bridge since 1984.  Looks somewhat different.  The Tsultan River bridge is at M4.3 of the Englewood Railway.  It would have been nice to see a train, but since it was Saturday, a day and a half wait did not seem like a good idea.

As I have seen noted in many a place remember the following:
 
Don't have to be faster than the bear.  Just have to be faster than slowest member of party
 
I'd love to go north & do a rail tour, but...still have a lot to do around here.  We (Daniel, my 4.5 Year old) and I went around the circle route from Duncan- Renfrew, and boy can you tell when you leave the railway ROW and go onto the road instead...

Wow! That's another excellent picture of the line. Even though it's not a wood trestle, it's still a pretty neat looking bridge, with great scenery in the background. There are just so many structures up there that cry out to be modelled, too. I really like that picture.

Oh wow, I was going to go to the same spot on saturday as well but ended up staying close to home tied up with other things.  The whole time at the back of my mind I was having thoughts of regrets as the weather turned out beautiful.  Nice pic, btw!
 
Going off track here; I recall a hiking joke. 2 guys are out hiking when one suddenly stops, sits down, takes off his hiking boots and starts tieing on his running shoes. His partner stops to watch and asks him what he's doing.  He replies, "I'm putting on my running shoes."  His partner says, "I can see that, but why?"  "Bears" he says. "You idiot, you can't outrun a bear."  The guy looks up at him calmly and says, "I don't need to outrun the bear. I need to outrun you."  

It would have been great meeting you in the valley.  Would rather bump into you than a bear.
 
You and wx732 might have the scenario all wrong, by the way.  If I was a bear, I would bypass the old, tired, probably tough and stringy catch and head straight for the young, fast, probably good and tender one!

Ha-ha, that may be a while,  . Especially since the railway I really want to model is the PGE and not Canfor. However, the part of the PGE I was thinking of imagineering is the part that never got built: the Dease Lake line extending north from Fort St. James. There was a lot of log haul on the operated portion of that line, however, so I look at the Canfor operation as having a lot of elements that could easily be translated to that kind of freelance concept. I've always particularly liked the idea of most of the bridges on Canfor being combined road-rail bridges, which would be just perfect for the type of operations I want to try.

WFP will be handling more loads than usual out of Vernon over the next number of months.
 
The photos show the 301 arriving at the Vernon run-around with a string of 35 empties September 30, 2010.

We have not been through that way for years not sure of the road condition these days, if I remember right it is about 25 miles through that
way and would take at least an hour or more. Someone in Gold River should be able to let you know present conditions, Good Luck

I went camping at  vernon lake on may long weekend and i went in through woss and came out through goldriver but i made lots of stops and detours so i can't remember exactly how long it took. The road was in great condition as far as logging roads go. I'll scout it out and take some pictures though.
