Remarks: While shooting some roster shots at the Western New York and Pennsylvania engine facility just before dark at Olean, N.Y., a worker told us that he was about to start the Alco C430 in case we were interested in watching, so I pull out my camcorder to tape this scene. Clip is from DVD# DV69. Thumbnail photo by Aaron Border.
That unit recently blew up on Keating Summit, or more specifically the turbocharger did. No idea on what the plans are for it.

That is cool. Thanks for sharing.
I used to fly helicopters out of the Navy base in San Diego, and one day I stopped at the rail yard on the way home. A pretty cool engineer did the same thing for me, and I was standing on the rail of the engine. It was very cool!
