What We Love: The Old Comox & Campbell Lake Logging Tramway

How many logs do you suppose this 2-6-2 locomotive transported in its day?

This photo is from 1912 when crew members still rode the loads

This prairie-type locomotive was a workhorse on VanIsle after the turn of the 20th century.

But look past the train and who do you see?

Riding the loads was dangerous work.

The folks at Old Vancouver Island on Facebook brought this beauty out from the archives. Check them out for more history.
