Partially solved is the question of why two Hudswell, Clark & Sons diesel hydraulics ended up at Vancouver Wharves. (See previous article.)
The solution was found in the September 1960 Trains magazine. I've spent several hours trying to definitively connect Samuel Williams & Sons to Vancouver Wharves. As Mr. Young reports, "British owned, the harbor road has imported motive power ..."
But he does not identify the British owner.
Vancouver Wharves opened for business on September 4, 1959. In addition to the two Hudswell's, the operator employed a Shay locomotive for several years.
