A day in Aug 84, we are between East Fork and the Tsulton River. After waiting at the Tsulton River Trestle we started to walk back to the East Fork Trestle and our truck. CFP 301 drifting downgrade surprised us at this curve between  
mile 3 & 4.

Here we are at the East Fork of the Tsulton River Mile 2.8 on another day of Aug 1984, CFP 301 with a load of logs heading for Beaver Cove. There does not look like there is any need of the water car on this rainy day.

CFP 303 at Nimpkish shop, this engine is the only engine that has not been rebuilt with a Cat engine. It is still painted yellow and is not used, plus looks a lot worse now than it did in this photo from March of 1984.

Here's a load of logs hitting the water and waiting to be loaded on a self-dumping barge that was out in the cove:

Here's and overview of  Beaver Cove, with the railway coming in at the top.  Lots of Activity, and a tonne of logs coming in.

Nice to see someone else post some pictures. The Vancouver Island site of Railfan.net has kind of slowed down since there has not been much moving on the E&N. A photo showing CFP 303 & 301 with a load a logs heading for Beaver Cove. This spot is between mile 7.5 and 8.5, the photo was taken from Highway 19. I have had fun posting these pictures, it has helped me remember some of the things I had forgotten about the Canfor Railway. When we starting making trips to the Nimpkish Valley, log trains were pulled by a single locomotive. As you can see by this picture they have gone to MUing the units. The other thing that came to mind was how the units were numbered differently. CFP 303 just had the number below the cab window, 302 had the the number below the cab window with the Canfor sign below it. CFP 301 was opposite, the sign being above the number, then 304 had the number 4804 on the cab for many years along with the stripe lower on the locomotive. I believe this photo was taken Oct 1984.

Sorry this photo was to be with the last quote. Thanks for posting some up to date photo's from the Nimpkish Valley Cody. I wonder where the logs are being shipped to on the log barge?
