I recently promised a more detailed shot of Genesee & Wyomong's Railcare (RC) 759, so here it is. I am sad to report that the SK license plate is a thing of the past.

  1. What an interesting contraption! Thanks. A unique piece of industrial Hamilton heritage linked to National Steel Car, Stelco and Railcare.

  2. Pilot plow and ditch lights, it’s ready for a road trip. :-)

  3. Journal boxes still on the trucks too. Looks like it may have an automatic pin lifter. Can anyone confirm?

  4. What model is this unit?

  5. I think the white hose coming into the pin lifter mechanism is a good indication, may be for something else though.
    They even painted the hood louvers and drop equalizers on the trucks a different colour. Nice.

  6. It’s in the trackside guide.

    Formely #6336 built 1918 nee Hydro Electric Power Commission loco used in constructing the welland canal 1926 then to Stelco as electric 21. It was chopped and kitbashed into this monstrosity by Stelco. It was Stelco orange until it ended up here repainted all black.

    It was renumbered into Railcareand G&W 759 after GW bought railcare.

    If anything nothing above the frame is original on it.
