    Default UP Alcos Eastbound

    A trio of Alco cab units (FA1-FB1-FA1) is seen leading a Union Pacific freight eastbound in these summertime views captured at an undocumented location. The UP purchased 88 FA/FB units from Alco in the late 1940s, but reliability issues hindered their productivity, and all of the units were retired by the mid-1960s.

    It might be of interest that a number of them were leased to Canadian Pacific in 1964. Reportedly they were already in UP's deadline when the contract was signed.
