ALCO Stats for
KJR #7135


Our ALCO (America Locomotive Company, located in Schenectady, NY; founded 1901) S-1 Switcher (originally #6) was build in 1943 (USN 65-00536) for the U.S. Navy.

It was used most of its career at Fort Dix, NJ as Army #7135. From 1974 to 1976, it was operated by the U.S. Navy at the Naval Weapons Station Earle in Colts Neck, NJ.

The locomotive was moved to CASS, WV in August 1976 and from there to the South Branch Valley Railroad.

The Kiski Junction Railroad acquired the locomotive in June of 1995.
