Alco Unit

alco locomotives left in railroad service?

Although the large Class 1 railroads in the USA no longer roster any ALCO diesel-electric locomotives, Union Pacific Railroad still has two steam locomotives built at the Schenectady, New York plant of American Locomotive Company (844 and 3985) and Canadian Pacific Railway's operating steam locomotive 2816 was built by ALCO's Montreal Locomotive Works subsidiary in December 1930. As well as the many operating examples on switching, industrial and tourist operations, there are railroads still running road freights with primarily ALCO power. The Arkansas & Missouri Railroad between Monett, Missouri and Fort Smith, Arkansas has a large roster of both switching and road freight units. The Genessee Valley Transportation Company has several rail operations using ALCOs, most notably the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad in the Scranton, Pennsylvania area, which runs multi-unit powered freights east to a grain-consuming pasta plant at Pocono Summit and an NS connection on the Delaware River across from New Jersey. The Western New York and Pennsylvania Railroad between NS connections at Hornell, NY and Meadville, PA also uses ALCOs. Morristown and Erie Railway in New Jersey operates several large ALCO units that occasionally show up on area mainlines. The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway operated several ALCO C430 units in New Jersey and New York, but I am not sure of ther current status. The Reading Company Technical and Historical Society now has a heritage museum in Hamburg PA that contains a restored Reading Railroad Alco Products C630 unit that has occasionally been used on excursion trains. A privately owned ALCO PA passenger unit is being restored to Nickel Plate Road (NYC&StL) appearance at Portland, Oregon and may put in an appearance soon. Added note: On the international scene, there were some large ALCO design units, mostly built by Montreal Locomotive Works and subsequent owner Bombardier that were used on large iron-ore trains in northwest Australia, but details on routes and current status will require input from someone down under. Iron ore haulers Quebec, North Shore & Labrador and Cartier in eastern Canada also had large Montreal built units, but were phasing them out and I don't know if any are still in service.
