  11. WC GP38-2

    WC GP38-2

    Ever since CN took over BC Rail and retired their RS18CAT fleet, WC GP38-2s had been heading west to feel the void. This one is heading back east however! I was suppose to catch it last winter on 357, but caught a blue-bird GT GP38-2 instead An ACR Geep ain't bad either - hard to believe they...
  12. WC 6006 (SD40-2)

    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...

  18. WC vs. WC

    WC vs. WC

    For starters, these aren't real WC engines. For over 30 years they were CN SD40's, the backbone of the fleet. Just like their SD40 brothers before them, who became CN 6000 SD40u series, they were sent for re-building to PSC in the 90s, who by that time was privatized by ALSTOM. Hence they got...
  19. WC 3009 (GP40)

    WC 3009 (GP40)

    Not that long ago this sight would be unthinkable, back when WC engines stayed on WC rails and CN still had their 278 strong GP40-2LW fleet. Now that most of it has been retired (~60 left), with the need for 3000h.p. 4-axle power remaining, WC GP40's are brought up north to the rescue...
