An interesting snap shot of years past.  I spent a week, during the spring of 2007, visiting dairy farms throughout BC's lower mainland and, simply by chance, came upon this intriguing scene. When checking out BC photos last week, I came across this amazing scene once again with its many semaphore signals (5) and cross-bucks (3 & 2 styles) intertwined with vehicle 3-way stop signs.  I could not recall the exact location so began the search westward using Google Satellite starting from a modern dairy farm overlooking CN Matsqui Jct and the massive bridge over the Fraser River. The unique trackage design was quickly spotted at the intersection of Clayburn Rd and Riverside St (albeit clearly not so rural these days). I then hit 'search' on rpc and plugged in Abbotsford, BC ... and bingo ... the other half of the story and accompanying photo (id 10963) of 06 24 2013 as submitted by Christopher Wasney. The site of my interest being the Clayburn Diamond and activation hut, Abbotsford, BC.  Southern Railway of BC was noted above as opposed to Canadian Pacific given I took the photo standing aside their trackage.  Thanks Christopher for actually putting a train in the picture and for providing both the background and the not surprising update, etc.
