Howdy! This is great info. I was strictly a diesel fan up until a short while ago and then I found this blog. Question. Could 321 run with 36+308+309+319 to form a 5 car train?

Thanks!

Nick

In theory, yes. However, in practice there are lots of obstacles to overcome, with little benefit other than bragging rights. At a minimum, we would need to put it on the 319's trucks so the brakes could be connected. And before that, of course, it has to be stored inside again! So I don't foresee this happening any time soon.

By the way, Nick, we're always glad to help expand people's horizons. Who knows, one of these days I myself might actually figure out how to identify an Alco.

LOL, Randall, just look for black smoke. If it looks like there's an oil rig on fire, it's probably an Alco! Thanks! Nick
