In 1911, McKinnon and Norton of the Newport Timber Company were logging in Squamish in the area known as the base camp road, near Curly Lews' place. They had donkeys, a large shay engine, and a weird whistle. Mr McKinnon was a bartender and Mr Norton was a logger. Amedy Levesque and George Laviolette worked as brakemen on the locomotive. The camp was run by Mr Fuller.

Garibaldi passenger car "junked" in North Yards in 1959. Use began again in 1974 with Royal Hudson.
Additional information from Trevor Mills, 01/2012: The PGE Garibaldi car was never used on the Royal Hudson train. The one on the Royal Hudson train was a CPR car that is owned by the Railway Museum in town and can be seen at West Coast Railway Heritage Park.

Amedy Levesque and his partners, Leviolette, McIntyre, and Levesque Co. ("The French Boys") were the first to use high rigging extensively in the valley. To rig a 70 foot high spruce tree, Arthur McIntyre would go up the tree, no spures, and chop off branches as he went. When he was tired, Amedy Levsque went up, finished chopping off the branches, topped the tree, and hung the two guy lines and blocks.
