Remarks & Notes 
One of the last L&N Alco FA-2s in road service leads train 864 at Loyall, KY in early 1968. The remaining Alco cab and booster units on L&N's roster were soon congregated at DeCoursey Yard south of Cincinnati, where they were used in transfer service. As they failed in service, they were sidelined, and then retired. Six of the cab units later found service on the Long Island railroad as control cars, and a few of the ex-L&N units are extant today. Alas, the 306 was not one of them.
