One year and four days after this everyday view from the sand shed roof in Victoria on Thursday 1972-06-08, lead unit 8007 on this train was severely damaged (along with three other Baldwins) in a head-on collision a bit south of Nanaimo.  Second unit 8002, which for its slightly sharp distinct M-3 horn was a favourite of mine, survived to the March 1975 end of Baldwin roadswitcher operation on the E&N.

In the foreground, the de-bunked open-deck log cars are in for scrapping, with the removed bunks being utilized to ready steel-decked flatcars for Lake Cowichan log service.  On the far left, the tender is for the auxiliary crane then still very active at Victoria.  It was practically a working museum there.

In the background, above the engine hood of the lead unit, the Island Tug & Barge rail-car slip for direct interchange connections to USA ports can be seen.
