The Abandoned ALCO Factory

Schenectady, New York

Jimmy Summers writes: The company I used to work for had a facility that leased space in several buildings at the old American Locomotive (Alco) Works in Schenectady, NY. The plant (Twin Rivers) has since been sold to another company and I have moved on to another job (good luck Twin Rivers!). This was awesome for a railfan! I found old crosstie nails and plates, and I had old drawings from the Alco days in my files, along with some old files with letterhead paper. I took only a few pictures, and hoped to get more... but time moves on.

All pictures were taken in the summer of 1998.
