Remarks & Notes 
In July 2000, the Western New York Railway Historical Society entered into an agreement with RELCO LOCOMOTIVES, INC. to purchase this rare ALCO Model HH660 high hood switching locomotive that was originally built in March, 1940 for the Buffalo Creek Railroad. This engine was the first ALCO diesel purchased by the railroad. It entered service on the BCRR on March 18, 1940 and serviced the waterfront industries of the City of Buffalo for over 26 years, when it was sold to RELCO in December, 1966. The locomotive had been in continuous service in various industries across the country since then. When the Society inspected the well traveled and out of service locomotive it was found to be an excellent candidate for restoration and eventual use. After years of careful restoration, what you see here is the fruits of thousands of hours of hard work.
