Here is a small set taken on May 12, 1986 showing a rare use of the wye to turn a replacement locomotive sent over on the barge facing in the wrong direction.

Ok, that last set of the the GMD1 using the wye is my favorite pics on this site! I grew up a block away from there and from our house on Cadillac Avenue we could see the stretch of track from Harriet to Wascana (and the track crossing Hwy 1 from my roof!) . I remember the odd time looking out the window and seeing a train using the wye and coming up just past Harriet like in your pictures.  Very cool, those pics bring back a lot of memories of that area as I used to walk that track with my Dad while taking our dog for walks! There used to be track actually reaching Tillicum Road maybe as late as mid 80s?

nice!  Hey  goose.. around late 85  I saw a  train using the  wye.. a gmd-1  with one hopper car and a flatcar loaded with truck cab/chassis   Im assuming that was for finning.. I dont know how they wouldve unloaded them with no end ramp spur.. maybe there was at one point. Does anybody know what the alfa street spur was used for? thanks.
