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!

1562 now wears CN paint:

Much nicer-looking -- but I'd still prefer fresh maroon and gold!

Also, keep up with the latest on the WC units here:
