Just Like the Good Old Days . . . . Almost
On Tuesday (March 25th, 2008) I swung by the Wisconsin Rapids CN yard on my way home. I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of ex-WC locomotives sitting out, still in Maroon and Gold. It looked like the same scene I'd seen a hundred times in the past.
From a distance, everything looked OK
Closer inspection revealed a 3014 in need of a face lift and a matching numberboard
The "Wisconsin Central" lettering was gone from the flank.
The 1562 looked even worse.
However, nearly 7 years after the CN takeover, I suppose something is better than nothing!
