disposition of SOU Aco switchers

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread


I'm looking for SPECIFIC dispositions of the several Alco S-1 and S-2 switchers owned by the Southern and their subsidiary roads.

I believe that several of these units eventually made their way to Weirton Steel in Weirton, WV where they were used as parts locomotives in the rebuilding of Weirton's original Alco fleet.

Can anyone help?

Most were traded ot EMD or scrapped. A few were sold to other roads and thos may ahve everntually ended up elsewhere. Don't know what EMD did with the ones they got in tradeins--Larry
