In my collection, a photo taken by Bruce Mercer. On this day, GMD in London, Ontario held an open house with a variety of locomotives on display. Bruce got a shot of the new BCOL 6001 a GF6C electric locomotive destined for service on the BC Rail Tumbler subdivision coal branch. I can image the smell of fresh paint and the only thing missing in this view is perhaps a "wet paint" sign. Thanks Bruce

  1. I wonder how they tested these out with no wire around the plant.
