Remarks & Notes 
WC 6639, AC 1762, WC 1702 are westbound with train SOGBA. The odd lash up was common on the eastern end of the WC, as the Ex Via Rail F's were often pressed into freight service. The 6639 was one of the last group of used SD45's purchased by WC. It came onto the roster after the WC bought the former CNW ore lines based out of Escanaba. The B-unit in blue VIA paint was the only F to operate before it was repainted into AC colors. The colorful geep came from the FRV and was one of a very few units in the full FRV paint.
