While the American Locomotive Company (Alco) ceased domestic production in 1969, many of their designs continue to enjoy productive careers to this day. These classic diesels have developed their own loyal fan following from coast to coast. Throttle up and enjoy this exciting collection of Alco articles from the pages of Railfan & Railroad. The glory days are gone, and their ranks diminished, but a half-century after Alco called it quits, their locomotives labor on. It's a testament to the rugged nature of the machines and to the dedication of the keepers of the faith that maintain and operate these Alco survivors. This book includes the following:
