Remarks & Notes 
Last remains of WC 3015 wait to be cut up for scrap at N. Fond du Lac. This unit was trailing 3009 on a freight coming into Green Bay when they had a head on collision with SW1500 1561 on a switch job. The 3009 suffered less damage and was repaired along with the 1561. This unit was the worst of the bunch, with serious nose damage and a bent/broken frame just in front of the fuel tank. The unit was striped of all available parts for use on another rebuild project and this was what was left about 4 months after the incident.
