The C-420

Falling behind in competition with General
Motors and General Electric, ALCO hit the reset
button and rolled out an entirely new line
of locomotives in 1963. Dubbed the Century
series, these locomotives featured an all new
engine, traction control system, air system and
multiple other features to offer more power and
especially efficiency as touted by the salesmen.
The C-420 was among the first of these models,
with over 130 eventually being produced for
railroads all across the country.
Despite the promises and hopes of the builder,
for the most part the Centuries failed to deliver
the operating or sales returns they and the
railroads had hoped for. Within 6 years, Alco
would close its American production facilities.
Despite setbacks, several C-420s remain in
operation today and the line has endeared itself
to generations of “Alco-holics.”
Lionel’s latest release includes all of today’s
great LEGACY and Bluetooth control features
and showcases many of the smaller regional
and short line railroads which embraced the
Alco models then and now.
