Came across a negative today showing the beginning of the end for Action Red on Vancouver Island.  Did a quick search and didn't find the 3005 in green already posted under this subject.
 
If it has posted elsewhere, pardon the old news.  (March 17, 1996)

Thanks!
Thought for sure I had seen one somewhere.  Hate to admit it, but I would have flunked the test if someone asked me if there was more than one version of the green paint scheme!

There's actually 3! even when first painted green, 3004 and 3005 weren't the same.

Now that would be a perfect peice for an island heritage collection. I know the island's railways have had varied equipment in all sorts of colours, but theres something about an SW unit in Multimark that just says E&N. Maybe I'm just biased towards end cab units.

The Deuce is 100 years old.  
 
An event is being held at the display site in Courtenay Friday August 13 starting at 10 AM to commemorate Comox Logging & Railway Company #2's first century.  Sounds like the organizers are trying to attract ex employees and others who are familiar with the locomotive.  The author of "Island Timber", a social history of the company, and its sequel "Mountain Timber" will be attending.

I found three E. Plant pictures from the Hutchinson-Mathews collection I picked up years ago.  They were taken in Vancouver but they were island engines over the years.  This one was taken Jan 29 1949.

Interesting! Do they have a cover over the front grille/radiator? They certainly look a bit different from the late 1950's and early 1960's at the front end.
 
I don't think 7072 (and the other 7070's) came to the Island until the early 1960's, when CP started logging their own timber in the Cowichan Lake area and hauling it by rail to Ladysmith.

I am in the process of cleaning out my Novabus youtube account and have transfered 2 videos to my ViRailway account.
 
#6133 video taken in 2008
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT1AUShbhDM
 
Southern Rail #124 and #129
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1Rtkkb5jgU
 
Both videos were taken using a very cheap quality camera. Actualy my first camera with a video option.   But you get the Picture.
