It appears to be a CN(IC) car now, check out the reporting marks on the side.

Stopped by Welcox this evening on the way home from the CARM conference in Victoria.  Saw this bright shiny blue car...

 
If you look closely you will see that the car has every type of err...connector for loading/unloading

If a tourist train does operate on the alberni sub I wonder if this type of frieght will go to the mill , rather than double handling it.

Could happen but I doubt they'd run all the way to Port Alberni for 1 or 2 cars. BTW, I doubt this tourist train will be going all the way to Port for a while, those bridges along Cameron Lake would need some work, the line hasn't been used in almost 6 years.

Went by Welcox this morning and grabbed some misc shots of the yard and contents plus a bunch more of the old CP Transport loading docks and team tracks.
 
Two of these FMC hoppers were there today:

As well as this IC car.  There are also about a dozen CP Rail cylindrical hoppers that have arrived recently and appear to carry grain/feed.  Several are being unloaded near the yard office.

I found this photo in another thread.  Look closely.  It's a BC Rail log car.  many of the others likely were as well.

Forget about seen on the island, what about missing on the island.  In Ladysmith there is the old CLR shed and the Jordan spreader outside as well as there was box cars and a modified gravel car.  There is only one box car as well as the jordan spreader left.  Anyone know what happened?

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.

I seem to recall some of the boxcars were burnt (arson) several years back when the cut of cars were up on the transfer track near where Transfer Beach Boulevard now goes through. The damaged cars were scrapped and the remaining ones were dragged via bulldozer down to the car shops where they now sit, so they could sever the unused track and push the road through.

It is mentioned in the comments that it may have gone to Squamish.

The one out in Saanich is a Pacific Wilderness Railway car from 2000/2001 that was bad ordered and didn't make the trip back to Illinois (?) with the rest of their rolling stock when their operation folded.

No, that one indeed went to Squamish, it's a former Colonist sleeper. The coach out at SHAS is a former Grand Trunk Western heavyweight coach that was condemned shortly after arriving in Victoria in 2000 on the PAW. The E&N refused to haul it back when PAW went under and Ohio Central sold it to the SHAS.

From what I found out the old Flat car and one box car are gone away to have the box car restored and the flat car trucks used in the restoration.  The cars missing are the ones by the engine shed in ladysmith.  Not to much info on who got them but I wish the spreader would be de-weeded.
