That's a fantastic photo Sidewinder, nothing better than trains in the snow! How long do they shut down for the winter?
 
Thanks everyone for the info, I'll have to pick up the Vancouver Island Backroad Mapbook for starters.  
Thanks, Vicguy.
Hard to say about the shutdown.  February or March maybe.  Depends on what mother nature has in store.

Thanks for posting it!

Interesting that you should say that, Will.  Thought to myself it would make a good candidate to plaster "Season's Greetings" across the top.  Got more than one photo today, though. Decisions, decisions.....
The ground fog at Camp A made for an interesting mood when the 301/304 were switching the reload.  Not a heck of a lot of snow.  But, there is a bit dusting the loads standing on the main in the background.

Hey, just to add in my voice, and re-iterate, that those two winter photos from Englewood are simply spectacular! I especially like the second one at Camp A looks particularly breathtaking: nice and cool and foggy. Perfect coastal conditions, yet it still has a nice amount of colors in it to make for a very complete and storied image.

That fog was there one moment, gone the next.

I had a chance to bum a ride to the Nimpkish Valley and back yesterday,some fog, lots of mud, quite a bit of snow and lots of logs moving.  WFP 302 making up a train of 36 cars to haul to Beaver Cove, great day. At present they are only hauling out of Camp A Reload.

Not sure when they went back to work, but it sounds like they have lots of wood to process. There is even talk of hauling wood both ways, cedar and pulp would go south and then west to Gold River, by train and truck. Fir would  come from Gold River to the south end of the line and train to Beaver Cove.

The 123's body was built by Hayes Mfg. Co, Vancouver, B.C. on Gibson running gear.  Logging speeders did not receive as much attention as their locomotive stable mates so information is sketchy.  This is an inventory photo proving the date the speeder arrived in the Nimpkish Valley.
 
The trailer, also Gibson, came from Bloedel Stewart & Welch's operation at Menzies Bay when their railway shutdown in 1953.
 
Speeder drawings have been published in Tall Timber Shortlines, Timber Times, and Model Railroad Craftsman over the years.  I do not recall seeing drawings for the #123 specifically.

I checked and Bolen Books in Hillside Mall in Victoria has the magazine.  I got it and it is an interesting article with good pics.

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.

Thanks for the heads up on this magazine, tfctrains. Are the daily operations described in the article fairly accurate? I'm still hoping to get up there at some point.
