Hidden in plain sight, the states of Pennsylvania and New York boast several railroads that still stable classic diesels from Alco. These workhorses are kept in good shape by dedicated group of mechanics under the direction of railroads that know the value of the Alco workhorses. This presentation is from two different trips in the fall of 2015 and 2016 to four different Alco railroads. Running along former lines of the Pennsy, Erie and DL&W, the tracks wind through the river valleys and over the mountains of the Alleghenies, the Poconos and the Appalachians. Along for the ride on our trips were a group of west coast photographers and during our treks we encountered many other characters. Tune in for a ride to the Alco’s!
