Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ALCO 300 was an early diesel-electric switcher locomotive built by the American Locomotive Company of Schenectady, New York between 1931 and 1938. Following purchase of the engine manufacturer McIntosh & Seymour in 1929, ALCO built a 300 horsepower box cab locomotive. This was the #300, an ALCO demonstrator. The engine used was the Model 330 and GE electrical transmission was used. Another demonstrator #300 was built as an end cab switcher in July 1931 also using General Electric electrical equipment. This unit was sold to the Lehigh Valley Railroad as its #102. A subsequent 300 horsepower end cab switcher was sold to the Lehigh Valley as its #103 in December 1931. A McIntosh and Seymour Box cab Lehigh Valley #125 was rebuilt with an ALCO 330 engine in 1931 and then renumbered Lehigh Valley #101.
