Coal train waits near the Quintette loadout with two GF6Cs.
In 1986 seven of these electrics were bought to serve the Tumbler Ridge Branch and the coal mines at the end of it. When the 15-year coal deal with the Japanese Steel Mills ended so did the work for these electrics. The electrics were retired in 2000.
