Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ALCO RSD-5 was a diesel-electric locomotive of the road switcher type rated at 1,600 horsepower, that rode on a pair of three-axle trucks, having a C-C wheel arrangement. Basically an upgraded version of the earlier ALCO RSD-4, and used in much the same manner as its four-axle counterpart, the ALCO RS-3. Though the six-motor design allowed better tractive effort at lower speeds. As of 2006, there are only two of these locomotives known to be in existence. Ex-CNW #1689, owned by Gary Baloun, is currently in operation at the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. The other is the former Utah Railway 306 owned by Doyle McCormack, in Portland, Oregon.show more
