Stopping in at Hawk, it was nice to see three of the original first diesels of the Algoma Central. The lot was GP7 #150-154 and here we see 153, 151 and 152. Note the enginehouse on the extreme right and the track of the Michipicoten sub on the distant left.
The AC 153 was gone by 1981, it went to Michigan Northern as their 1603, then to Maple River Transfer (Pellston, MI) and was eventually scrapped at the Ohio Central in 2004.
AC 151  was sold (along with 150) via a dealer in 1981 also, and went to the Keota-Washington Transportation, a short stretch of track that became available in Iowa upon the demise of the Rock Island Railroad. The "Kewash" didn't fare so well, being abandoned by 1988.
As for AC 152, it didn't fare well at all either. It got itself scrapped in 1980.

Hawk Junction was an interesting place to visit at one time. Now; under CN,  there is little remaining.
