Hello everyone I'm a new member here. I'm a huge Allis Chalmers fan and a lover of trains. I'm trying to identify this this switcher engine that the company owned in order to build a model for my collection. I have many other pictures of Allis company owned switcher engines if anyone is interested in seeing them I will post

Wouldn't surprise me if AC built it. Didn't they buy Buda engines used in some locomotives?

It would be a good way to test engines in a real world situation.

Yes they did buy buda and I know they built alot of electric stuff used in the railroad one way or another. It's very possible that they built it themselves.
