Review of Rails on Vancouver Island DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
RAILS ON VANCOUVER ISLAND

SHE'S A SURVIVOR. FROM 1955 TO 1994, THE "MALAHAT DAYLINER" RDC FAITHFULLY PLIED THE VICTORIA - COURTENAY ROUTE. WHILE THE FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN, HERE YOU MAY ENJOY THIS OPERATION FROM TRACKSIDE AND ON BOARD. YOU WILL ALSO JOIN THE CREW OF A CANADIAN PACIFIC FREIGHT BETWEEN NANAIMO AND VICTORIA. WATCH FROM THE CONTROL TOWER AS THE RAIL BARGE IS UN-LOADED ON A RARE SNOWY DAY AT NANAIMO.
THEN WE TURN THE CLOCK BACK TO ABOUT 1960 AND GLIMPSE HERITAGE VIEWS OF THREE LOGGING ROADS: COMOX, HILLCREST, AND MACMILLEN & BLOEDEL. THERE IS EVEN SOME MODERN-DAY STEAM LOGGING AS CANADIAN FOREST PRODUCTS 2-8-2 #113 PULLS A HEAVY TRAIN. WE ALSO PAY A VISIT TO THE B.C. FOREST MUSEUM. SO HOP THE FERRY AND COME ON OVER!
