7 Nickel Plate Road's Alco RS-11s and RS-36sPaul K. Withers
Late to dieselize, Nickel Plate selected road-switcher models from Alco and EMD to end steam operations, division by division. In the early 1960s, the carrier was merged into Norfolk & Western, where the Alcos continued earning their keep well into the 1970s and early 1980s.
24 CSX Transportation's U30CsLouis A. Marre
After enabling the Louisville & Nashville Railroad to handle booming coal traffic in the 1970s, these veterans worked into the CSX era, when they became cult objects for railfans before being replaced by hordes of Dash 8s.
32 Providence & WorcesterDavid R. Sweetland
One of the pioneering regional carriers, P&W began operations in 1973 with six leased Alco RS-3s. Today it operates a fleet of 36 units, including GE Dash 8-40Bs, B39-8Es and B30-7As, as well as EMD GP38s, GP38-2s, and GP40s.
42 Norfolk & Western GP4Os - Part 2Paul K. Withers
N&W's entire fleet of GP4Os was transferred to Norfolk Southern ownership in 1982, and today, some 23 years later, 24 of the units continue to work for the carrier. Among the 36 units divested by NS, nearly all have found homes on regional railroads across North America.
