Fort Smith RR
Was a bit foggy - North east PA
Somewhere in PA
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.
I don't want to spoil your excellent thread BNSF FAN, but I thought I'd toss in an Alco shot taken in the summer of 1976 or 1977 at Hudson, OH.
It was taken the same day as this shot:
That is a great shot and so is the one in the link.
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 thought of this one I also posted here a few years ago.
Point353 added that the unit was moved to the East Penn and was in poor condition, but rumors suggested that it might be restored to service on the Allentown & Auburn.
This is a new RR name for me. More information?
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.
A couple of nice mugs:

MLW C-630M and C-424, both in operating condition, at Exporail.
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.
That's no RS-3, that's an RS-1! That cab is a dead giveaway.
Ok, sorry for the mistake...
