Ex-Erie Alco Switcher Gets Heritage Treatment

New York short line railroad New York & Lake Erie has applied a new livery to its Alco S1 No. 308.

The new look combines elements of the Erie Railroad and Erie Lackawanna liveries.

The 75-year-old unit was built for the Erie in November 1946. It received the new livery as part of a rebuilding process.

No. 308 has been returned to revenue service at Gowanda, New York, and will operate on former Erie trackage along with former VIA Rail Canada FPA4 locomotives.
