This is a 1960 ALCO 125-ton diesel locomotive, according to the web. Quite fancy livery, too. The Sunny Knott Loadout is located at Lackey, Knott County, Kentucky. We couldn’t tell if it was active. The gates were wide open and, even though there was security of a sort, we weren’t hassled at all. From the looks of the surrounding area, this must have been a busy site once upon a time.

HEY…A FORMER (?) BICENTENNIAL UNIT! LOOKS LIKE A CAB-LESS ALCO SWITCHER…RE-POWERED???
