Featured Vintage Alco Photos
Dave Willoughby took this great shot of San Diegans #77 and 78 meeting at San Diego. Thanks!
Here is the Alco demonstrator at Sagola, MN on the MILW, marching up Sagola Hill at 5 mph. Don MacLaughlin (a GE guy) is looking for wheel slips, but the unit is doing just fine, thank you! A wonderful shot taken by Bill Battle. Thanks!
