New Westminster Yard Mile 9.0 Westminster Sub.
The yard is shared by SRY, CP, and CN.
The SRY and CP are in the CP Westminster Sub there. The CN tracks
are on their Lulu Island Industrial Line. The SRY access the Annacis/Queensboro
Branch via the CN line at Mile 1.5 (Bottom of map). The CP Marpole
Spur (old V&LI),
is West of the Westminster Sub that ends at Mile 9.5. The Marpole
Spur head butts with the Westminster Sub at its
mile 16, as noted on the map.
The SRY Fraser Valley Sub starts a bit further East of the yard near
The Dock Yard is still there and is normally quite busy. Just lucky
on that day it was vacant-ish. Of course the assigned yard job down
on the Marpole Spur at O-Yard is now long gone. The less than handful
of customers still on the line are serviced
by local CP Road Switcher assignments once or twice a week. So too
the SW1200s are off the roster.
The tracks have seen many changes over the years. I dont have
a map of the layout from back in the 60s or so.
Since Expo 86 the whole New Westminster waterfront has gone through
major changes. All of the industries along the waterfront there are
gone with condos and such occupying the space. Andy Cassidy 2017
