Artist: Paul Marcano

Painted in 1982.

Thundering across a log bridge over the Chemainus River is Locomotive No. 4, an 80-ton Porter 2-6-2T, once the pride of the Victoria Lumber & Manufacturing Co. Ltd.’s Copper Canyon Railway System.

Chemainus was the delivery point of the first, the last, and the longest enduring rail logging operation in BC.
