THE  PHOTOS

The Washington Terminal RR Co (WATC) Alco RS-1 No 59 is sitting in Salem , NJ on the Southern Railroad of New Jersey’s tracks. It has seen better days. I include it under the ‘Rare and Obscure’ category due to it’s age because so few are left and the fact that it still has is Vapor & Clarkson steam generator in it, which was showing. There are many photos so that anyone interested can see the available details if they wish to model it. The locomotive has the long hood designated as the front. Therefore, all photos consider the left and right sides as seen sitting in the cab facing forward. Built 12/48, builder #76218, to Amtrak 59, now apparently belonging to the Southern Railroad of New Jersey, found sitting on their tracks in Salem NJ.
