.

The American Locomotive Company, often shortened to ALCO or Alco was a builder of both railroad steam locomotives and diesel locomotives in the United States. Although it was strongly committed to the steam locomotive, ALCO produced the first commercially successful diesel-electric locomotive in 1924 in a consortium with General Electric(electrical equipment) and Ingersoll-Rand (diesel engine). This locomotive was sold to the Central Railroad of New Jersery, and subsequent locomotives were built for a number of railroads including the Long Island Rail Road and the Chicago and North Western Railway.

The company bought an engine manufacturer, McIntosh & Seymour Diesel Engine Company, in 1929 and henceforth produced its own diesel engines, although electrical equipment was always from GE. ALCO was in the 1930s the pre-eminent diesel locomotive builder in the United States, but the General Motors Electro -Motive Division (EMD) took over that position with aggressive marketing, a ready supply of development capital from its parent company, and the intervention of the war years. During that troubled time, ALCO was allocated the construction of diesel switching locomotives the S's series diesel switcher. Many railroads in the United States owed the S series switcher. By 1948, ALCO possessed 40% of the diesel locomotive market.

The ALCO S4's were 1,000 horsepower (746 kW) switcher diesel locomotives produced by ALCO. The S4 had standard AAR type A switcher trucks, in the standard B-B format. The S4 was powered by the ALCO 539 turbocharged, 6 cylinder diesel engine. The S4 was built between between June 1949 and January 1961 with total sales of 797.

Our ALCO S4 is meant to be a fairly accurate representation of the real thing! All steel construction, 1.7" scale.
Diesel engine measures 73"Lx17"Wx25"T on trucks.

EMD SD70 ACe, 1.6" scale

Description:

The EMD SD70 is a series of diesel-electric locomotives produced by the Electro-Motive Division. Production commenced in late 1992 and since then over 4000 units have been produced; most of these are the SD70M and SD70MAC models. All locomotives of this series are hood units with C-C trucks.

The SD70ACes are similar to the SD70MAC; however, the model has been upgraded to meet Tier-2 EPA regulations. Production commenced in 1995. SD70ACes are equipped with EMD's 16-710G3C-T2 prime mover, rated at 4,300 horsepowe.

Several other changes were made as well: the radiator on the locomotive is nearly as wide as the cab and looks similar to the radiator on EMD's SD80 and SD90 series of locomotives. The SD70ACe model has the Phase II cab of the SD70M but the panes of the windscreen are rectangular instead of teardrop-shaped. The nose has been modified and is much more angular than previous models.

Our SD70ACe is meant to be a fairly accurate representation of the real thing! All steel construction, 1.6" scale.
Diesel engine measures 10'Lx16"Wx25"T on trucks.

Two Engine types are available with a gas or electric motor.
