Would someone post some photographs of Alco FA1 and FB1 locomotives?
This image came fro the Western Historical Manuscript Collection at University of Missouri, Rolla. The colors have shifted with the passage of time
Here are some photos of Frisco Alco FA-1

I will look for some more in my collection to post
Great photos! Did you know that the Alco FA-1 and PA-1 where known to have a very distinctive diesel whine and bellow diesel exhaust high into the air when they were first fired up? I can remember as a little boy being scared of them because of the diesel whine noise and the huge bellows of smoke. How the times have changed!
