Stumbled across this old shot probably taken in 1991. Was it the yard area at Ladysmith? If so, what happened to all that equipment?

Isn't that Victoria Pacific's old equipment? If so it's a lot earlier than '91 - it was pulled off the CN line by a temporary track and taken to Ladysmith in 1976. I'm not sure what happened with it after that, besides at least one of the locomotives ending up at the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad in Mineral WA.

It could have been 1981. My visits to VI were 1976 (but first time so we didn't stray very far from Shawnigan Lake) 1981, 1991, 2000 and 2006, then every year from 2011. This is from a print taken on an old camera. (CJL)

This is Ladysmith for sure. I believe some of the equipment is still there inside a large warehouse type building. There were also some boxcars there back in the day that have since been destroyed by fire. I believe some of the equipment was from Comox logging Co.
