Alco PA's 17 and 19

Postby Tom6921 » Thu Sep 25, 2014 12:43 am

I know that the four D&H PA's went to Mexico where 16 and 18 were eventually stripped to their frames and then reimported back to the U.S.

However, 17 and 19 looked more or less complete and operational in Mexico.

In some articles about "Streamliners at Spencer", it said that Doyle's 190 was the only intact PA in the world. Whatever became of 17 and 19?

I guess they should say "only operating PA", vs "only intact PA"?

And, while we're at it… There were also the three ps (with 5'3" gauge trucks)exported to Brazil: at least one of them at least used to be in a Brazilian railway museum.

Last report, it's still there, in horrible condition. The other 'survivor' was cut up a few years ago, with the cab becoming part of a building.
