NKP 1, Alco S-2 Switcher, Built 1942

Here's where it all began. Looking inconspicuous but businesslike, NKP 1 poses for her builder's photo at Alco before beginning two decades of work in Buffalo. The "swinging R" application is unique to the first six S-2 units and the first four NW2's. NKPHTS Magazine Winter 1997. Photo by Alco, NKPHTS Collection.
