Remarks & Notes 
For an NJ Boy, who had only read of this place in Extra 2200 South, the first moment I saw all the ALCOs at the Bull Ring, I was in utter awe. This was the first squeeze of my shutter, feature shot of S6 #1280. Delivered as #4644 12/55, it was one of a group of 12 end-cab switchers intended for road service. It is seen here with a C630, C628, a few U25Bs, another S6 and a C415. All of these units are actually sitting on temporary track laid out on top of concrete.
