Alco was established by the merger of most of America's smaller locomotive builders, banding together to meet the competitive threat of Baldwin. For "locomotive" read "railway materiel of many kinds," for "America" read "the world," and for "Baldwin" read "China". Basic plot-line is the same. (But thanks, Dutch, for keeping us up on developments!)
