B28s #2402 at Alliance, Ohio
B28s #2402 switches the Transue & Williams plant where Tom Speidel's father worked. This is one of 30 USRA 0-6-0 switchers built by Alco for the PRR in 1918 and 1919. They lasted until the early 1950's. Except for the headlight, numberplate, and markers, this engine does not look PRR. Photo from late 1940's.
