During the summer season VIA rail used two dayliners on the CP line between Victoria & Courtenay BC. During the off season only one dayliner was kept in operational. The stored car was kept nice & dry in the Victoria car shop. After the conclusion each days trip up island the operational car was maintained in the back shop area of the 1913 CP roundhouse. Chances are pretty good that rail operations on Vancouver Island are finished. As I like to say it "Death by politician."
