Preserving the ALCO Legacy for Future Generations. Support the Society’s Mission Today.
The ALCO Historical and Technical Society was created to preserve and share the history of the American Locomotive Company (ALCO), a prolific builder of steam and diesel locomotives that was based in Schenectady, NY. Their role in WWII as a manufacturer of tanks and other war materiel, and in the early days of automobiles, are two additional areas the Society is focused on.
We invite you to join the Society today, and to visit the current home for the museum exhibits at the Walter Elwood Museum in Amsterdam, NY. Additionally, your tax deductible donation using the PayPal link at the top of this page will help us with our ambitious plans.
Visit the site often to learn about volunteering opportunities, events, our participation at train shows and other civic events in the area, or to learn more about excursions. Drop us a note through the contact form to suggest new activities or to join our mailing list. We look forward to meeting you in person.
