[quote author=alanlill link=board=Vancouver;num=1077604803;start=580#584 date=11/04/17 at 15:12:01]Hi Jamie et al Thanks for this picture and all the other info you and other posters have provided that Bob Turner and I have used for two CN LINES articles on CNR's Vancouver Island operations. Do you have any other photos which show the buildings at Borden Mercantile and could you please expand on what we are seeing as I am not a VI native and never saw this operation? Note for those interested you may subscribe to CN LINES by going on our website for info. www.cnrha.ca Ask for subscription to start with CN LINES Vol 18 No 1 and you will get four issues, three of which will include major articles on CN on VI.

The GMD-1 1000 is switching Borden Mercantile's agricultural feed plant, located at the end of CN's 1.4 mile Saanich spur. Borden's was CN's last remaining on-line customer, the service ended in January of 1990.
