Ex-GBW #308 re-lettered for the Wisconsin Central.
RS-20 #308 was captured at Donovan, Illinois in September 1995.
This was two years after the Green Bay Route was merged into Wisconsin Central's
Fox Valley & Western subsidiary. The photo shows the changes made
to the loco after the WC purchased it.
- The billboard "GBW" letters on the long hood were painted out.
- The "Green Bay Route" herald was painted out and the initials
"WC" added to the cab side.
- The all-weather window was painted white (why?).
Not long after this photo was taken, the Alco locomotive was sold to the
Kankakee, Beaverville and Southern Railroad, where it still operates as #308
