Alco Treasury — new book celebrates locomotives

26 October 2021
White River Productions releases a new publication aimed at fans of North American Alco locomotives.

White River Productions has announced the release of Alco Treasury: a collection of stories about the American Locomotive Company (Alco) diesels and the railroads that use them.

The book is a collection of Alco articles from the pages of Railfan & Railroad Magazine, with an introduction by author and photographer, Greg McDonnell. While Alco ceased domestic production in 1969, many of its designs continue to enjoy productive careers to this day, earning the classic diesels a loyal fan following from coast to coast.

Their glory days are gone, and their ranks diminished, but a half-century after Alco called it quits, its locomotives labour on. The book is a testament to the rugged nature of the machines and to the dedication of the engineers that maintain and operate these Alco survivors.
