There should be dome car somewhere on that barge--I've usually seen one whenever I've driven past there.  How recent is the pic?  Or perhaps it's under cover on the other barge.

Hey speaking of railbarge movements and such from the mainland.  I'm curious to know if anyone knows if the parts for the wind turbine project have been coming over into Nanaimo and whether they came by rail before that or not?

It's up around Cape Scott at the north tip of the Island.  I've been watching the huge pieces go by every morning on the Island Highway.  HUGE parts.  I saw one of the turbine blades one night... biggest thing I had ever seen on a truck. They are building 55 turbines for phase 1.  99MW.
 
They must be barging over to/from somewhere.  But wondering if they're being built in North America and so coming by train, or perhaps more likely, they're coming by boat to Vancouver or Seattle and being barged from there.

They are coming by freighter from somewhere in the world not sure where. I understand there is 450 truck loads heading to the north island.

I was wondering when the track work is done and Southern  gets more freight customers, will they stick with the barges for rail freight or will they get another railcar ferry?
