The precursor to the Southern Railway of Vancouver Island was the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway which was a subsidiary of the CPR. I happen to own an E&N GP38 (Atlas) as follows.



Graham, your living on VI, a model logging railway would be a possibility for you.

Yeah, the E&N technically still owns most of Nanaimo even though it doesn't exist (the deeds for our house are E&N deeds!).  As for a logging railroad I'd have to buy a Shay or two (there's a nice one parked next to the highway in Duncan and 0-6-0T outside the sawmill in Chemainus.

I'm not sure how much its used or even if it still is but there's a railbarge loading facility at the yard in Nanaimo that I would love to see in use.

Hi, Does anybody know how high the Kato American style low platforms are? They include compensation for the height of Unitrack.
Looking to buy some strip wood the correct height  :hmmm:
