Over the fence - a few Alco switchers
Author: gcm

Dec 80
In Houston at - if I remember correctly - a GE plant that worked on old engines a few ex-Santa Fe and SP Alco switchers with a critter thrown in.
I didn't have access so a few quick ones over the fence.
Ex-SP S6 1253 was in the group.

Considering the fence and all, you did good to get these.

The black and yellow "critter" #17 looks like a rather rare Atlas 65 tonner to me.  Can anyone confirm?

Yes, It sure looks like an ATLAS 65T unit. Haven't been able to track down this particular unit as of yet tho.  Ben
