Biking

This blog highlights some of my adventures with the focus on railroad history. Originally intended as a blog of my rail trail rides, it now also includes hikes, railroad trips and even stop-and-go car trips if they are railroad history related...

ALCO Engine - Schenectady

I spent an overnight in Schenectady and I was pleased to find an ALCO RS-3 diesel locomotive on display right on Nott Terrace. IMHO it's the least Schenectady could do to honor this past industrial giant that once had a factory complex here. The famous phrase “The City that Lights and Hauls the World” was referring to GE and ALCO respectively.

The sign was helpful in explaining the "local heritage."
