Truly unique old engines. Can't say as I've ever heard of an engine rated at 1699-hp.

I've always enjoyed the odd-looking locomotives. This Baldwin AS-616 is no exception. I love the Remarks & Notes. It's interesting that it had 1,699 hp, not 1,700. Amazing amount of tractive effort, for a 1952 loco. Thanks for a Super photo, Bill, & for sharing with us. PCA nominated.

My thanks to both Steves. The AS-616 boasted 1,600 hp, of course. Correction made.

I always chuckle to myself when I see the "Dependable Transportation" logo on some dubious candidates like this unit, the C630's, the C855's, the U50C's...

To add here, this looks like a tank. Ready for just about anything it encounters. Quite the beast.
