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:
