Hi All,

I'm doing a shoot this weekend and the client has requested an abandoned raiload track. Ideas of something near Langford? Much appreciated:)

I guess it would depend on what your shooting for the client... but I always like the train trestle in Goldstream park. It's a hike up a hill but nothing too difficult. But again not knowing what you are shooting it's difficult to suggest a section of track that might have the 'right' background/foreground you're looking for.

The roundhouse or old train station over the Bay street bridge or the Saanich Historicsal society off Island view.

Great spot by 6 Mile pub, right by the HWY overpass and Galloping Goose trail. Right at Exit 10 (Colwood/Langford)

These were shot there -

Great suggestions. In addition, the E&N railroad passes through Langford. It is not abandoned, but the traffic is so light that it looks abandoned in many places. You can follow it in Google Maps online in the high resolution Satellite View and select the stretch most suitable for your assignment. Then zoom in and study a particular area in the Street View: it is amazing what the modern technology can do!
