Remarks & Notes 
By 1995 the WC had assembled quite a group of experienced craftsmen at North Fond du Lac Diesel. Always on the look out for ways to upgrade the power on the system, WC had bought three ex CSX GP40's that had definitely seen better days. After quite a bit of shop time this former Seaboard System wreck was made whole and operational. In this photo it is ready to depart Shops for a full WC paint job at the WSOR in Horicon. It would be renumbered in the process and emerge as WC 3018. It is quite the kit bash incorporating parts from the original unit plus many parts from wrecked WC 3015 along with a BN cab and short hood via VMV.
