Remarks & Notes 
WC 1236 reflects on itself at Shops Yard, North Fond du Lac, WI wearing the earlier maroon/cream colors that WC started out with in 1987. This unit was a relatively new SW1200, built in November 1965 for the SP. It was numbered SP 2287 before joining WC ranks. Here it is coupled to former Houston Belt & Terminal SW9 no. 1231 which shows off an interesting variation in striping on the rear of its cab. These units were paired up for heavy switching duties at Shops Yard.

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
