WC 6006 (SD40-2)

Three WC units after four years of railfanning CN's mainline... At least they're different types: SD45u, GP40, now a SD40-2! A WC GP38-2 should be next as they've replaced BCOL's beloved RS18CAT fleet on the coast and come through occasionally.

Don't let the paint fool you - before becoming WC 6006, this was Algoma Central 188, a unit with much more Canadian history then that re-badged NS SD70M-2 junk leading.

PS. I could post a roster if there's interest, looks much better this way then from the side IMHO.

You got that right. But Hunter no longer respects Canadian history, beacuse we destroyed his Amercian historical Illinois Central.

Nice shot. I caught the WC 2006 awhile back, which was a GP38-2. I lost the pictures, though.
