Locomotives at the BC Forest Discovery Centre, Cowichan Valley Railway

  • Bob
A collection of video and photographs detailing the 13 locomotives seen by me at the BC Forest Discovery Centre (formerly BC Forest Museum, founded by Gerry Wellburn).
This is at North Cowichan, north of the City of Duncan on Vancouver Island.
My visit was on August 9, 2021.
The video shows 3 Shay locomotives, 2 Climax, 2 Vulcan steam, 1 Vulcan gasoline, 3 Plymouth gasoline, 1 Brookville gasoline and a Whitcomb diesel. There is also a crew speeder shown.
Locomotive information was taken from the website of the BC Forest Discovery Centre:

Corrections to some data shown in the video:
- Plymouth #26 "Green Hornet" engine is no longer a Buick V-8. It's now some other gasoline engine (sorry, I can't remember what they told me)
- Crew Speeder #27 is unlikely to be a 1949 original. It is more likely to be a replica built later on for the forest museum.
