ALBANY & EASTERN

Very few times have I actually seen anything running on the Albany & Eastern.  In fact, I don't have any photos of anything actually running on the railroad, but here's what I DO have... which of course is not to say that there is never anything running on the AERC; merely that my visits to the line have been limited and short.

As usual, clicking on a small image will produce a larger one for your perusal.

   
Hulk of an ALCO PA in Lebanon, Oregon

A visit to Lebanon, Oregon in November of 2008 netted some shots of the hulk of an old ALCO PA1.  This unit has a long history. 

Originally owned by AT&SF, sold to Delaware & Hudson Railroad, upgraded to a PA4 in 1975 by Morris-Knudsen of Boise and returned to D&H, she may have spent her last useful years in Mexico.  She apparently was then purchased by an interested party with a possible plan of being restored in shell only in its original Santa Fe livery for display at the Smithsonian Musum.
