Williams Alaska Petroleum is getting their own switcher for Anchorage. The locomotive is moving from Chattahoochee Locomotive, Pickens, SC to Anchorage via Norfolk Southern to Memphis, TN and then BNSF to Seattle, barge to Whittier, and then ARR to Anchorage. The locomotive is listed on the UMLER computers as CLCX 02113 525 HP ALCOS4. Best guess has this as a Caterpillar re-engined ALCO S-4. Chattahoochee Locomotive's specialty is rebuilding and re-engining ALCO switchers. The number 02113 is probably indicative of rebuild work done in 2002 and the 113th CLC project. The locomotive is painted blue and white.

I am guessing one of the Atlanta bound trains (119, 153 or 173) will get it tomorrow. It is a sharp unit. I had to knock off the handbrake giving me a few minutes to explore the cab. Set up for Radio Control. It has the most simple control "stand" I have ever seen - just a pipe with an oversize train set transformer mounted on top. A few gauges in the front cab wall and that's it. It even only has one seat. Very clean - very nice - great rubber floor. It has a cab overhang at the rear and ditch lights on both ends too. It made an odd sight trailing my 4 EMD's.
"P.S. It remains unlettered - just very small stenciling on the frame reading CLCX 02113. I couldn't find a frame number (and really didn't have time to look closely)."
