This photo is likely from a special fan trip/excursion for railway enthusiasts sponsored by the Canadian Railway Historical association on Sep 18 1954. The CNR would have brought all the passenger cars to Vancouver Island by railway car ferry just for this trip as there was no CN passenger service on the island at this time. The train was the only all-passenger train to cross the Kinsol Trestle, north of Shawnigan Lake.
