I called Plets and ordered the DVD so I should have it in about a week.

They are also working on another Alco DVD covering New York and Pennsylvania Alco railroads. They plan include quite a few NY railroads such as the LA&L, Adirondack Scenic, MA&N, Buffalo Southern,etc. This will also have the bigger operations in Pennsylvania such as the D-L, and WNY&P as well as some of the smaller ones such as the Oil Creek.
He hopes to include the NYS&W ALCOS as well.

Another great Alco DVD to look forward to.
In case anyone wants to know, Plets has put out several other ALCO tapes such as the A&M, Minnesota Commercial, and one including the KB&S and Indiana Hi-Rail.
