Remarks & Notes 
Headed for the mill. With a cut of 10 cane cars and some executive "varnish" along for the ride, US Sugar's 1920 ALCO Pacific #148 runs at track speed (about 40 mph) toward the company's sugar mill complex in Clewiston, FL, about 4 miles northwest of this location. This locomotive's history with this line not withstanding, this engine was a perfect candidate to be the first steam power on the new tourist operation being developed by United States Sugar Corp. This engine was built for fast passenger and freight service. Although the tractive effort is not super high at 28,300 lbs, it will be operating on very flat terrain. With 68" drivers it will easily be able to manage the 40 mph speed limit on US Sugar's smooth, well-maintained lines and stay out of the way of the regular cane trains. Teamed with superbly restored, heavyweight passenger equipment, this will be one of the fastest and smoothest-riding tourist trains in the entire US.
