Description

The American Locomotive Company, one of the nation’s premier steam locomotive builders, joined forces with Schenectady, New York neighbor General Electric to build the first standardized diesel-electric locomotives in the 1920s. But when the diesel revolution began in earnest after World War II, dependability problems with Alco’s model 244 prime mover doomed the company to forever playing second fiddle to industry leader EMD.

The brawny good looks of Alco’s FA and PA cab units, however, have endeared them to railfans and modelers for more than half a century. Designed to compete with EMD’s FT four axel freight locomotive, the FA-1 contained many of the same design elements but used a new 12-cylinder 244 engine. Many would argue that Alco’s FA-1 and successor FA-2 diesels were both handsomer and more powerful looking than their major competitors, EMD’s F3 and F7 “covered wagons.” A signature feature of Alco cab units was the striking ribbed grille surrounding the headlight. And while FAs were sold primarily as freight haulers, like EMD’s F-units they had room for a passenger-service steam generator at the rear of the engine compartment.
