E&N (SRY-VI) Movement Reports: 2016
 
« on: Dec 29th, 2015, 4:16am »

Another year has come and gone...
 
Limited rail movements as the track infrastructure has succumbed to an all time low....
 
Please log any freight movements you may see in the yeat 2016: location, time, power units and freight cars.
 
Thank you!

First post of the new year.
 
4 cars northbound for Superior Propane. Returned with 6 cars. Here's some photos to start off the year right.
 
1. Northbound crossing Townsite Rd.

Yesterday, when I was in Nanaimo, I stopped by Welcox for a quick look. They just finishing unloading and loading the barge, spotted in the cars unloaded was a SRY caboose, not in a good location for a photo. Sometihing new and different for the fans on Vancouver Island. Looked like a former BC Hydro Caboose.

Maybe this has something to do with starting serious track repairs and having a rolling office on wheels.

Perhaps the reason for bringing the caboose over is so crews can now make the run to superior and back without having to run around the train after. They can just push back through Nanaimo with a crew member riding the platform. Who knows. Just speculation.

Certainly a possibility. There should be a run today to see.

Lots of good photos in both threads today!
 
I noticed a brand new SRVI high rail up by Wellington today - likely inspecting the crossing equipment.
