California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Southern Pacific ALCo S-2
122 units delivered
74 units delivered to SP
SP 1356 Alco S-2 was shot in the San Jose area in 1952. Photo from the collection of Gene Deimling.
SP received 74 and T&NO got 48 of these units, making a total of 122 on the system.
An ALCO S-2 Roster will show these occupied 4 distinct number series, in 3 different classes. Differences were limited to minor mechanical things and marginal variation in weight. Some received radio equipment and train indicators, none were ever MU capable.
The 1965 renumbering was based on units in service at the time, and was generally non-sequential, ie. the next unit was given the next number.
In 1965 only 82 S-2's remained in service, by September (the actual renumber time) another 8 had bit the dust...
