A bit of history on these units (WC 6900-6949)
Originally CN SD40's in the 5000-5240 series, look like this:
- rebuild by Ashtom in 1997/1998, look like this:
50 SD40-3's just like this one (rebuilt CN SD40's) have been around CN for a while now. But recently they've been all bought back by CN and are being patched up and renumberedas WC. Most are still in the GCFX sheme though.
Category: Lease Units, Demonstrators, Specials etc.
I railfanned in a 2 places today, catching CN, CP, CEFX, SOO, BC Rail, & GCFX (WC).
The reason I chose this shot, is because it's a regular train with nothing special about it, exept for the non-CN trailing unit.
