Looks like an Alco C415 switcher

Exactamundo. Ex-SP 2407. Nostalgia time for me; I lived in the area where these ran in the Los Angeles area, mostly around City of Industry and Los Nietos. Way back in the last century.

For those of us who are too lazy or just don't have the time to click on a thumbnail :trollface:, what type of locomotive is that, @C855B?

Sorry about the thumbnail. We’re on the road and I can’t get to my web server easily, so I had to use the forum embedding feature.  :|

Wow, The Burlington Junction sure loved oddball stuff!

Apparently. I’d seen the SW1001 but didn’t pay it much mind, chalking it up to the quirks of a small industrial line with hand-me-down power. But I all but jumped out of my skin on spotting the Alco. Thankfully after my WTF moment, Robyn insisted we turn around for pix. I was floored once out of the car and heard it idling. Quite a treat!

The #701 is former Columbia & Cowlitz (Weyerhaeuser) #701 that operated in Longview, WA since new in 1968.
Interestingly, former Chehalis Western (Weyerehaeuser) #684 is also still around, though stuffed and mounted in Fife, WA.
