E&N Parksville Turn ~ May 3, 2013
Other than the Duncan Turn and Nanaimo switcher, the only other regular job on the E&N is the Parksville Turn, and even that operates maybe once or twice a month. It's purpose is to deliver covered hoppers to the National Silicates plant in Parksville and sometimes switch the Superior Propane spur in north Nanaimo. Parksville is roughly 25 miles north of Nanaimo and is currently the farthest north that the E&N now operates as the Courtenay Turn was abolished due to poor track conditions.
