|Alco PA Diesel Locomotives|
Whereas the Alco FA units were designed for freight traffic, the PA units were designed to pull long passenger trains at high speed across the country. The PA A-B model above was issued a few years ago by Lionel; it's a pretty good model of the prototype, shown below.
Here's another prototype in the attractive livery of the Delaware & Hudson.
MTH has brought out excellent models of the Alco PA in their Premier line. Here's the 2006 version in an A-B-A set in the always classy tuscan red with five gold stripes livery of the Pennsylvania RR. First is the leading A unit.
Next is the B unit.
Here's the trailing A unit.
And finally, here's a close-up of the classic nose of the Alco PA.
Here's a photo of the PRR prototype.
