Re: PC: C628

Hey guys, what scale gauge is this ALCO?  I seem to recall that the PC
tried to use ALCO 630s?or 636s as mid train slave units; similar to what
Detroit-Edision had on their unit trains. I believe the
receiver-transponder box was mounted below the cab as there was no room
behind the cab such as on the DE engines. I believe that only 5or6 units
were so equipped and it didn't last very long. I know we use to have
alot of trouble with the DE in trying to get their radio codes to snyc.
The word was that the ALCOs were unreliable in mid train, that they kept
breaking down. Of course it seemed on the PC that everything kept
breaking down. GeorgeAlberti
