CRIP 118
Title:  CRIP 118
Description:  During 1948 & 1949 the Rock Island returned to ALCO and bought eight 3-unit freight locomotives (cab-booster-cab) to compare with the newer F7-model produced by GM-EMD. The latter began to arrive in 1949, with numbers commencing at 100A,B (cab, booster), and ending at 127A,B in 1951. Both the ALCO and GM-EMD units were powered by 1500-hp engines, and both rode on B-B trucks.This fleet of 42 multiple-unit locomotives replaced the older 4-8-4's in mainline service almost immediately, but the newer ones lasted until the fall of 1952, when they were retired long before they were worn out.

Alpine Road
Title:  Alpine Road
Description:  Alpine Road, a lightweight 14-section Union Pacific sleeping car, continued a name tradition started during the heavyweight era. Though most eastern railroads had converted to all-room car designs by the time the Alpine cars were constructed, some western railroads retained open section accommodations to meet customer demands. Built by ACF in 1954 to Plan 9017, the fourteen cars of this class were rebuilt to 5543-5556 series chair cars in 1965. Note the upper berth windows.

SP 4855
Title:  SP 4855
Description:  ALCO introduced its "Century" series of locmotives in 1963, and the largest model in the initial catalog was designated the C628. Southern Pacific, impressed with the performance of the demonstrator set sent around by ALCO, purchased a group of twenty-five of the massive units (Nos. 4845-4869) in April, 1965. The railroad also acquired the four demonstrator units, numbering them 4870-4873. Then, only a couple of months later on July 1, 1965, the Southern Pacific adopted an entirely new numbering scheme for its locomotives, and the new C628s became the 7100-7128. In this photograph, taken during the short period in the spring of 1965 when the ALCOs carried their first numbers, Nos.4855, 4850, 4852 are approaching the end of their difficult run over the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
