Alco Builder's Plate ID

Postby Statkowski » Thu May 22, 2008 9:44 pm

I've got an Alco builder's plate from a CNJ (CPA?) RS-3, s.n. 80232, March 1953.

Any idea which RS-3 it came from?

PS -- you can confirm that information here: http://www.thedieselshop.us/Alco_RS3.HTML.

And, the actual reference is Extra 2200 So. Just another "senior moment"...
