Why use rail when translink gives the liberal government the biggest bribes in the province?

You mean you didn't know that it's the Province of Vancouver? I thought everyone knew that anything outside of the lower mainland no longer exists.

I am not sure if this is news or speculation but is is the link for ICF's application for "Funding Submission for Essential Safety Upgrades & Repairs to the Vancouver Island Rail Corridor".

It's interesting reading.

I might be wrong but I did see two TTX pole cars westbound through Edmonton around noon on the 25th so I hope they are headed for Royston.

Sounds good, I wonder if they will be on the barge on Monday, we are only seeing loaded cars leaving Royston every 2 weeks. It would be great to see more cars available, there are hundreds of poles in each pole yard that could be shipped if the cars were or are available.

Isn't that funny? Send a couple of questions to them about questions you have and the presentation disappears. I didn't think my questions were unanswerable either. Strange, very very strange.

The server might be checking the referrer before allowing access. Try copying the link and pasting it into the address bar manually.

It's always dangerous to link directly to files on the web, because filenames can easily be changed rendering the direct link useless even though the file itself is there.  Not a big surprise that the filename has changed considering the old one had "thingy" in it
 
 
URLs on the other hand, rarely change because web blogging/content software makes it more difficult to do so (for good reason, consistency, etc)
 
Here is the proper webpage with the link (poor web design hard to tell it's actually a iink to a file).... it's the words right above the feedback form:
http://www.islandrail.ca/2010/10/26/nanaimo-victoria-service-plan-announced/svi-infrastructure_twatts-submission-oct-15/
 
And here is the VIA Rail Potential Report

For the link I posted or on the Island Rail website itself?
 
If its for the link I posted just go to the main website www.islandrail.ca
 
click on "Continue Reading NANAIMO-VICTORIA SERVICE PLAN ANNOUNCED"
 
and then scroll down about 3/4 of the way down the page and you will find the links to:
 
"Funding Submission for Upgrades and Repairs
 
Report on VIA Service Potential"
 
each will take you to the page with the links to the actual documents. (again, horrible web design)
 
They are PDF documents so make sure you have Adobe Acrobat.  If you still have trouble just email me and I'll attach the documents to  an email for you.

People will have heart attacks if they think they will have to buy Adobe Acrobat for this Chris. The free Adobe Reader should work just fine.

was down at Wellcox today.  This sign is posted on the fence along the road above the yard.  53 acres is a lot of ground.  Anyone have any information on exactly what is for sale?

I heard that it's all up for sale and it is C.P that is selling it. Don't quote me on that being the absolute truth. Just heard bits and pieces from different people.

it mainly consists of the Wharfs and paved area

53 acres is a lot, but Wellcox is much bigger then 53 acres. I'm guessing, but it's likely that the parts for sale are the waterfront areas in the (unused) south east section.
 
As for ALL of Wellcox being up for sale... is that really very likely? Considering that this "minor" unannounced piece of news would put the kibosh on any future plans for the whole railway. Including the application for moving the Dayliner terminal from Victoria to Wellcox.
 
Anyway, one way to find out is to phone up the real estate guy listed and ask him exactly what is for sale.
