Remarks & Notes 
Doyle McCormack's 1948 Alco built Nickel Plate PA-1 No. 190 rests within the Oregon Rail Heritage Center on display for visitors to gaze upon in between restoration sessions.

The locomotive was originally built for the Santa Fe and delivered in the famous red and silver War Bonnet livery and numbered as #62L. It is one of two Alco PA-1's to be repatriated to the United States from Mexico in 2000. This, thanks to the efforts of William Withuhn of the Smithsonian Institution and Doyle McCormack, a noted railway preservationist based in Oregon. Through an agreement with the Smithsonian, #62L was cosmetically restored to a Nickel Plate Road livery, a childhood favorite of Mr. McCormack. Work continues on a restoration to operation with a transplanted prime mover built by MLW acquired from BC Rail. They've come a long way as evident in this photo by Mike Haywood from 2001 seen here.
