98 at North switch of Fraser (1972)

Bernard E. Kern was at the North switch of Fraser where he took the image of the arring train from Whitehorse. GE 100 had already a modified heated windshild.

GE 100 and 94 Northbound at Carcross 1977

John Lytle took this nice image of the Northbound train North of Carcross in October 1977. The flat section of the Yukon doesn't need much motive power. Two GE's are enough for the final 2 hours trip before the train reach Whitehorse at 5:45 PM. Boerries Burkhardt Collection.

GE 100 in the Federal colors (1980)

In May 1980, two GE`s with GE 100 as lead engine are departing Skagway. Steve Hauff took this great image with the blue/white/orange engine. Please note the large number on the side as well as the engine 100 had a blue diamond logo. Here the number inside the logo is already faded. I belive that more units were waiting on the other side of the street as the MU cable is still pluged in the socket.

GE 100 with Federal colors in WHSE (1980)

William J. Madden made this great railroad shoot of the engine 100 in his Federal Industries colors scheme at June 28, 1980 in Whitehorse, Yukon. Interesting to see the MUW connector remained into the plug during summer 1980. Collection of Boerries Burkhardt

GE ready to ship out of Skagway

Going out with one of the next barge down to Seattle, General Electric 100 with the original Alco power. Number 100 is the last of a series of 11 original for the White Pass build shovel nose diesel engines who will get rebuilt and receive a new engine. September 9, 2013, Boerries Burkhardt

100 LAST RUN

By July 2015, the engine 100 was scrapped at the Hamilton Plant in Tacoma, WA. After the engine was stranded at the bankrupt Sygnet Plant, the engine was partly rebuilt from the frame side but had no motive power or gear. So the decision was made to strip off all useful parts and scrap the shell. The last GE is now the first one who disappeared from the White Pass roster.
