Looks like an Alco!

There's a reason it looks like an ALCO, it was a copy of an ALCO that was reversed engineered in the good ole' USSR and then copied over and over.

Dear friends! I think, there is some misunderstanding. In fact, USA sent to USSR ALCO RSD-1 in WW2. Soviet engineers reverse engineered ALCO in TE1. TE1 is the first class of soviet diesel-electric locomotives, designed after WW2. Improvement of the TE1 design ended with creation of the TEM1 class that formed a basis for design of TEM2. Thus, TEM2 isn't a direct copy of ALCO RSD-1. However absolutely precisely ALCO RSD-1 is the primogenitor of the whole branch of the Soviet industrial locomotives (TEM1 - TEM2 - TEM2U - .... TEM18). Pardon me for my English, please.
