Re: PC: PC Alco question




Hi all,

Here's some information concerning the PC Alco question posed.  The PRR placed
an order in late 1967 with Alco for fifteen model C-636 locomotives.  Their
construction and delivery ended up being the second new locomotive delivery for
Penn Central, after the twenty new GE U33C locomotives.  The C-636's were
numbered 6330 to 6344, had builder's numbers 3499-01 to 3499-15, builder's dates
of March and April 1968, and were all delivered by the end of April 1968.
Coincidently, the last of this order was delivered in the same time frame as the
last of the U33C order.

As far as I know it was not the last locomotive order placed at Alco by a
railroad but PC did not place any other orders with Alco after the C-636's.
