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.

The daily operations are described in the article, rough times are given for the various way points. A scanner does help plus the backroad mapbooks. When we are in the Nimpkish Valley and spending time trackside we stop in at the Rail dispatcher shack and let him know what we are up to. We always have a hardhat and a  high vis-vest on. They are very concerned about safety.

Definitely a must buy! I will look for it in the stores.
 
I just recently also picked up a back issue of CTC Board magazine that had an article about the Englewood operations as well. Some years old, however, as everything was still in the yellow. I also owe the Mainland Modular Railway Society a donation for it next time I see them .

Wow!  I didn't know they were running trains with more than 50 loads!
Thanks!

Wow, great video! Almost hurt the ears with all those flanges squealing  .  
 
At least they are still wise enough to run with a caboose as well.
 
Here's a question that might spur some discussion: I'm just curious if anyone knows what rating WFP has been rebuilding its bridges for. Are they rated for mainline traffic, or is the mainline only built to industrial railway standards?

Anyone know if the Englewood is operating right now.   I am heading up to Hardy for work on Friday, and am hoping to catch some trains on the way up.
 
Any info is greatly appreciated.

I know it is now almost Dec, I understand the WFP is putting close to 80 loads a day in the water. I have tagged onto the last post so I can share some pictures from 1973. This photo was taken at the Woss Reload located at Woss Lake during a Logger Sports Weekend held by Canadian Forest Products, June 1973. During Logger Sports Competition CFP 113 ran to  to the Lake and back.
Here they are running around the train.

There was a speeder on the rear of the train to push the train into the clear so 113 could run around it.

In March of 1979 we ventured further north here we are at Beaver Cove, CFP 113 looks pretty good as compared to the last time I visited her.

CFP caboose 402 at Woss Camp, I believe this is old Northen Pacific caboose.

I know one person at least that will enjoy this picture. We are at the south end of Woss Camp here we have a Speeder with a crane attachment coming down the Upper Cutoff. The Upper Cuttoff left the main line at mile 38.2, it has been removed for many years.

All the reloads in the Nimpkish are all quite modern. This photo from March 1979 shows how they looked then. This is Kromen Reload it was located at the end of the line near where the Hoomack Rest Area is to-day, or the turn off to Mt Cain.
