A couple of views at Port Alberni in 1976. It was a great chance to compare old and new paint jobs (the only maroon and grey I ever saw in service). Note the station reduced to single storey and compare with the shot I posted on E&N structures yesterday and the shots elsewhere of how good it is since restoration.

I caught CP 3005 while trying to get some pictures of BNSF's barge operation on Burrard Inlet in Vancouver. It was lashed up to CP 5742, which was previously part of another CP operational division, CP Expressway.

That building behind the 3005 is the old CN yard office. The crew is working in the CN yard.

Tyler, do you know what happened to the yard office? Is it closed permanently because CP is doing all the switching now? Last night was the first time I'd noticed the "CN" missing from the front of the building.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not the red. Well actually I like the red pain but why can't CP just leave this one Green. It looks soooooo good like this. We better take as many pictures of it now before more noticeable parts get painted red or worse, the whole engine

Wow, thanks for finding out where it's going. I guess I'm going to have to go to CA.  . I wondering where the other ENR engines went?

Thanks for posting that, Tyler. There was a picture of 3870 in Denver on Cordova Station a month or so ago. Interesting that its still there. San Joaquin Valley must not need it very badly. I wonder if they'll paint it into Railtex's scheme?

I found a couple of pics in an old family album and figured you might like to see them.  They are from about 1963or 64 and were taken in Ladysmith.
