Nickel Plate Road #190

NKP 190 on display at N.C. Transportation Museum in May 2014!

Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful diesel locomotives of all time, the American Locomotive Company (ALCo) PA-1 of 1946 had all but vanished from US rails decades ago, with the last four American units sold in 1978 to Mexico. 22 years later, two of them were repatriated. One of these is currently being restored as Nickel Plate Road #190.     

Be sure to check in for updates and new photos/video of the 190 being returned to operation!
