I am continually amazed at how thorough you are with these pictures! Great pictures again, but also very sad to see. At first I was wondering what the bulkhead flats were for, but they must have been to haul all the rail away (am I right?).  
Goose, do you ever remember back in the late eighties, a depressed center flat car parked under the Carey Road overpass? It was black, and I believe it was a CN car. I checked it out with a friend one day while walking over to check out the latest GI Joes at Woolco and to this day, can't imagine what it was for.

Hi Chris. No I can't say that I recall seeing the depressed center flatcar that you refer to although I do have a photo of a depressed center flat loaded with what looks like a transformer of some kind being switched into the Johnston Terminals spur. Haven't got around to scanning it yet though. As for the bulkhead flatcars, I think the BC Forest Products mill on Gorge Road was still shipping loads out on them at this time. The empties in the photos are probably ones that arrived via the E&N and were not yet needed.

nice pics, goose.. sad tho. I once saw a gmd-1 switching out a flatcar load of truck cabs/chassis  on the  wye track by the trans canada hiway. do you recall any odd moves like that happening there? I wasnt  sure where the loads were headed but there was a finning dealer and budget rental there so maybe one or the other.. dont know how they wouldve unloaded them as  there was no stub spur or  end  ramp there that I know of. another odd thing is that it happened on a  saturday. Mustve been around summer of 85  or  so. Goose..also do you know who was served at the alfa street spur? going back throo your fotos  it apears there may have been a second spur around alfa street too as there are extended ties to the right   before the left trunout. thanks.---m

Dave, thats interesting, I didn't realize they shipped out lumber by bulkheads there, I always remember boxcars being at the mill. Also, VERY interesting about the flat car at Johnson Terminals. Maybe thats where the one I saw came from, but I don't know why they would have left it there and that also means that they would have gone around the wye so the engine could return to the yard. Hmmmm......
 
Torch: still trying to find out about that flatcar w/trucks, huh? I know this was discussed years ago, but I forgot if you said what colour the trucks were? If they were white, they must have been for Budget, Finning was pretty much all heavy equipment type stuff. Also like you said, how did they unload the flat? Maybe they borrowed a crane from Finning
