Diesel Dinosaur Delights - The Early Years|
To an Alcophile, there's nothing sweeter than the wheezing, whistling, barking sound produced by a smoke-belching, burbling Alco diesel. Simply sighting them is cause for elation among the throngs of enthusiasts who seek them out. In this three-volume series we set out to document an example of every Alco model remaining in operation, a journey which takes us throughout North America.
Volume 1 covers the early years of the Alco diesel. Locomotive models are presented in chronological order by their first production dates. Switcher models that are powered with the Model 539 prime mover such as the HH660, S-1, S-2, S-3, and S-4 are shown in operation, along with RS-1 and RSD-1 roadswitchers. You'll follow Alco's progress with the introduction of the Model 244 engine in both freight and passenger diesels. Mode RS-2, RSC-2, RS-3, and RSD-5 units are viewed working for various shortlines, museums, and industrial users. Exhilara
