ALCO in Action

The Adirondack Scenic Railroad's Railfan weekend, sponsored by the ALCO Historical & Technical Society, was a resounding success for both organizations.  The event was well attended and we successfully spread our good will about the organization to new people.  In case you missed it, photos of the event can be found here:
