The ALCO FA was a family of B-B (two identical trucks, or wheel assemblies under the locomotive) diesel locomotives designed to haul freight trains. Our locomotives were built in Montreal Canada at Montreal Locomotive works, the Canadian equivalent to the American Locomotive Company (ALCO). NVR70 was built in 1958 and 71,72 & 73 were built in 1959. They are dual passenger-freight versions of a Cab Unit design. Geared to operate at over 90 mph, they were originally equipped with steam generators for heating passenger cars. The steam has been replaced by our Head End Power (HEP) units that provides electricity for the passenger cars.
Go Loco guests will be riding in the cab of a working passenger train and will have to follow several rules. Click here to read through the Go Loco rules and restrictions.
