Who is RAILCO Inc.?
Author: RRBMail

Atlas just announced a new run of Alco HH-600 diesel switchers. One is lettered for RAILCO Inc. However, I can't find anything about them on the net. Does anyone know who they are? Thanks!

Cute lil' bugger. Found it in Longview Washington at the big grain silo.

Odd that the indecorated units are $10 more than the painted/lettered models

770 is ex-Northern Pacific/Walla Walla Valley.

Yep, it appear's it's still in the Longview area under private ownership. There has been talk about moving to the Museum in Snoqualmie but it sounds like it didn't happen.

Painted blue and it has been hiding out in an old elevator shed for years at Longview, WA.
