Arkansas and Missouri all Alco again. ( due to derailment)

Postby mowingman » Sat Oct 11, 2014 7:21 pm

This next month or so, might be a good time to go railfan the A&M railroad in Arkansas. Due to a major washout and derailment, All 3 new SD70ACE diesels have suffered wreck damage. So, the A&M is apparently going to be ALL ALCO AGAIN, at least for a while.

It sounds like there were some diehard Alco fans out there with voodoo dolls shaped like SD70ACes, and lots of pins in 'em... :wink: :-D
