Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful diesel locomotives of all
time, the American Locomotive Company (ALCo) PA-1 of 1946 had
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
restored as Nickel Plate Road #190.
Be sure to check in for updates and new photos/video of the 190 being returned to operation!
