Remarks & Notes 
This old Alco was built in 1950 for the Washington Terminal. After ceasing operations for them, it was brought here to Possum Point to shuffle coal cars around, and after this plant converted to gas, it has done nothing but sit. Also notice the large Osprey nest on the long hood, thus preventing any movement of this unit at least until after nesting season.
