Identity crisis on this loco. BCOL 810 sporting the British Columbia Railway logo and new number 810. This unit is ex EL 2460, one of 12 used C-425's that BC Rail bought. If I recall correctly the railway bought these for 100K each, still in reasonable running condition and ran them until they either failed or could be fitted into the re-building program. Eventually they all got the BCR "two tone green" paint scheme and many years of service.
