Re: PC: Looking for Alco FA-2 PC# 1350 photo..

The FA at Danbury Railway Museum is neither an ex-LIRR unit, nor an FA-2. It is an ex-VIA FPA-4. I saw it at DRM while it was still in VIA blue paint. It is now painted in a modified PC 'red P' scheme.

I don't recall that there were any US roads with FPA-4s, if that's correct, than this would have always been a Canadian unit.

Also, I believe Bryan is correct, some of the LIRR power cars were L&N FAs.
