ALCO's at General Electric in Erie

Post by pablo »

I know the DL/GVT bought that six axle recently. I saw a post in the last day or two that suggested there was at least one more ALCO there, which I thought was wrong.

Anyone have a definitive answer?

I don't know if it's out at Erie, but GE has an M-630 with an S7 electrical system that's been floating around. Apparently it even wound up in a BNSF shop in the midwest once.

GE has a few 539-engined switchers, at Cleveland and elseware.
