230 Chesapeake & Ohio
The 230 Chesapeake & Ohio Alco A is a one year only locomotive manufactured in 1961. It is painted dark-blue with a yellow stripe near the top and yellow heat stamped lettering. It is considered a reliable locomotive and with dual axle magnetraction, it is considered a good pulling diesel. Although production was limited to a single year, the 230 was available as a separate sale item, in catalogued sets as well as uncatalogued sets. Although this diesel is a somewhat common item, collectable condition 230's are hard to locate.
Standard features on the 230 Alco include: closed front pilot, two-axle magnetraction, two position E-unit plus a headlight and non-operating rear coupler.
