Photos From March 2002
This is a "Ultra Rare" Alco 4301 Bicentennial engine.
Made as a proto type or "What if" engine in late 1973 or early 1974 as a precursor to the production Tyco Alco 4301 version #1 that was only sold in complete sets.
These very rare engines with the 5628 number badges were never sold to the public.
I am about to start a restoration of this engine that will be detailed in a separate Ultra Rare Restore WebPage as the project unfolds.
