Little Engines ALCO video

Post by Highiron » Sat Jul 25, 2020 10:21 am

Here it is after much work and editing back in November of 2019 we took all four of the new Little Engines alco's Texas and fired them all up and ran them together it was a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy the video the weather for the first two days of the meet was unbelievably cold the first day of shooting it was 37 degrees on the next morning it was 24 degrees before warming up to 70

Enjoy

Great video of four fantastic locomotives! I'm amazed at the quality of workmanship put forth by the builders. I look forward to seeing them in person one of these days!

Neal thanks for the great comments you actually have seen all four of them you photographed and rode behind the 9100 train mountain in 2012 you got to see both Northerns at your 50th Anniversary meet and the one year you came to Pasco you got to see my Hudson

Dang! You're right, Mike. I have seen all four, just at different times and places. I'd tell you about my great memory, but I forgot where I put it. :)

No I don't have any projects in the works as a matter of fact it's time to downsize a little bit and I'm going to be putting Lackawanna 1154 Hudson up for sale
