They were lined up in long rows in the north end of the yard, one of the finest Alcos ever assembled in America. The didn't last much longer. This one came from P&N to SCL, to L&N. I would love... (more)

L&N's first acquisition of used C-420s came from merger with the Monon. The Jaunty bell was a dead giveaway. I believe they also had dual controls. I these days they were in pretty good shape. ... (more)

It's got dynamic brakes, something L&N didn't buy on it's 35s so it's got to be an ex-C&EI unit relocating within the big terminal. Note the footboards, the lack of ditch lights, an intact builde... (more)
