I'd be happy with a C-424 or C-425. Almost as old as I am, but they are still out there running today!

The Alco DH643; AKA "Alco-haulic"... was a hopeful alternative to the Krauss-Maffei diesel-hydraulics bought by the D&RGW and Espee from Germany...

The Alco engine + German Voith hydraulic drive did not make nice... and these 3 engines didn't even last 10 years (1964 to 1973).

They used to rumble up and down the California Central Valley right next to US 99... (before I-5), which was the flattest long chunk or right-of-way on the SP. They were considered pretty worthless in the mountains.

I own also one out of an RS3 kit. Built by A&K. But I haven't a crisp photo. :wall:

An ALCO Century 628 would be nice. The RSD is on my workbench, in detail the Tri-mount trucks. I'm really slow with finishing the project, I know. :wink:
