Taking the privilege upon myself of starting a new thread on the continuing train movements on our precious little railroad....I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and personally thank particularly Goose 5 for keeping us updated on the bits and pieces of freight in and out of Wellcox Yard.

This makes me relieved. After Superior Propane in Victoria in 2001 and then the 2014 embargo of Top Shelf in Duncan, I always worry when I hear about an engine going out light and coming back with cars. Especially on the island, you never know if it's the last one.

I happen to catch that train trundling south near the Dorman Rd crossing that day.  Sorry for the photo quality.

News is that the boxcars which were at Parksville have now been returned to the Victoria roundhouse... by truck.  
 
Is there anything left at Parksville anymore?

I wonder if a quote from SVI was sought out?
 
If they did quote, I'm sure it would be astronomical. Are the bridges and crossings south of Nanaimo still being inspected and maintained?
 
Oh and thanks Goose5 for continuing to update this thread.

I'm not sure of what all was moved but there are plans afoot to move the baggage car and caboose up to Coombs when the new museum siding is put in place. That could be the very last car movement on the east side of the Port Sub when it happens. I am afraid that all the pretending that commuter will work is going to have a very negative affect on the E & N.
