    Is this operation still alive? Have not heard of them in many years.

    Not really sure. Had a friend that worked there at the time but he has since left us and I lost track of that RR.

    These two were in a mine south of Talbottom GA. Wanted better shots but security said no.

    That is a great shot and so is the one in the link. (y)(y)

    You do bring up a good point here and I should have put this at the beginning that I would encourage anyone who wants to please feel welcome to add shots of Alco's to this thread. The more the better actually! :):):)

    I hadn't heard of it before either. I found that t's in Kutztown, PA (eastern PA) and has 4 miles of track of CNJ and RDG heritage. They appear to run passenger trains on a special occasion basis and offer freight service, though I don't know if any freight is currently handled.

    Not sure if I posted this photo before. It's of the Black River & Western's No. 57 again, but this time in a low-rez Kodachrome scan. Taken in Ringoes, NJ in October 1983.

    Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Circa 2006. Both units are kept in running condition for Merida RR Museum. First unit ALCO C420. 2nd unit EMD567 powered RS3.

    Those are some good looking units. I like how that C420 looks in that paint scheme. Thanks for sharing the pics. (y)

    That's no RS-3, that's an RS-1! :cool: That cab is a dead giveaway.
