This car was transferred to the Algoma Central in 1997 (post-WC ownership) and repainted in the AC colours of the time and given the car name “Algoma Country”. At first the car was lettered with the Wisconsin Central name and logo, but in the Algoma Central bear passenger colours. Sometime after 2000, the WC name and shield were removed and the Algoma Central name applied. This dome car saw regular service on the Agawa Canyon Tour Train until the mid 2000s.

  1. I was looking at that build the other day, and thinking about tackling it. If you’re going to try it, do 2 cars, and I’ll buy 1!!
