Two ex Algoma Central GP38s still wearing their previous owner (Wisconsin Central)'s colours await the next call to action at the north end of CN's ex BC Rail (originally PGE) yard in Fort St John. Some ACR paint can still be seen around 2005's side window. The exACR units were quite normal on this end of the former BCR due to CN's near absence of DB equipped four axle units on the roster, and the combination of mountain grades and four axle only territory in the area. But in this image, the time is 01:34 and both units enjoy some down time.
