Crown Zellerbach 8427, an MLW RS-3 ex Canadian Pacific 8427 (and chop-nosed by CP), could easily win an ugly locomotive contest when viewed from its short hood end, but when sparkling clean and viewed from above, it was okay.  When photographed (from up a tree) departing with log loads from the dryland sort yard at Nanaimo Lakes on Thursday 1981-03-12 and heading to Ladysmith, it looked very recently painted.

Today, that locomotive is in the care of the Western Vancouver Island Industrial Heritage Society in Port Alberni.
