BC-10, -11 and -31 were sold to the Oregon Department of Transportation and used on the Lewis & Clark Explorer Train during the summers of 2003, 2004 and 2005. They have since been sold to the Wallowa-Union Railroad Authority for use on the Eagle Cap Wilderness Trains, in remote northeastern Oregon.

BC-12 was sold to Industrial Rail Services, a RDC rebuilder.
BC-14 was sold to an undisclosed party.
BC-15 and -30 is on the Wilton Scenic Railroad.
BC-21 and -33 was sold to the West Coast Railway Association

All other units were disposed of prior to the CN purchase in 2002.

BC-15 and 30 are down in Newport, RI as the Islander Touring Train, same operation as the Newport Dinner Train.
