This is an RS-3 diesel-electric locomotive built by Alco in Schenectady as 1 of 1,370 RS-3's from May 1950 through August 1956. This locomotive was designed and used as roadswitcher.

diesel engines including the 531, 539, and the 251 were built in Auburn, NY, the RS-3's 244 engine was built in Alco's Schenectady plant
