Brush cutter has made it to Courtenay, parked just south of the Courtenay Station tonight.

A NARCOA speeder excursion headed by northbound. Looked to be about 15 speeders with an SVI hirail at each end to trigger the crossing signals.

No not on vacation. Right now there seems to be only 1 movement a week, maybe due to less demand for propane during the summer months. Today was 5 cars northbound, returning with 5 cars.

Last week they ran out in the morning around 10 AM - Tuesday IIRC . I am just up the block from Superior and they seem to be fairly consistent with 2 times a week. The long weekends sometimes screw it up though

Thanks Chris. I work Tuesday mornings and am not home until after 1:00 so would miss any morning movements. Yesterday I caught the return southbound but not the northbound.

Probably the brush cutter - I don't think a locomotive has gone south of Stockett since service to top shelf was put on hold.

Unfortunately we cant see anything here - but most of the time they are pretty easily heard. I am surprised they returned light the other day, they must have shoved the cars all the way in as it looked like at least 1 was missing.

3 cars northbound for Superior Propane. Returned with 2 cars. This trip was about twice as long as normal. I wonder if there was an accident of some sort. Also I was by the Northfield Rd. crossing today and there has been a recent accident there with the north signal stand looking like it must of been hit by a truck. It was still standing but at an angle with it's base pulled out of the ground. Other road signs were also damaged and knocked over.

I noticed the crossing a couple weeks ago... it looks like a semi truck and trailer tried to make that sharp turn off the highway and took out the crossing.  
 
They definitely were slow today - I didn't hear any sirens - whatever kept them, it was north of Superior.
