ALCO/MLW Passenger Dual-purpose
Alco FA-2s and FB-2s built with steam generators installed were designated FPA-2 and FPB-2. Only the Missouri Pacific, B&O, L&N, Lehigh Valley and some Mexican railroads had FP models built at the Schenectady plant. All other FPs were built by the Montreal Locomotive Works produced FA-2s and FB-2s under Alco specifications ME1600FA and ME1600FB. These were produced for Canadian National Railways, Canadian Pacific Railway, And National de Mexico in 1953-1955.
Montreal locomotive works also produced the FPA-4 and FPB-4, under Alco specifications DL218 and DL219. Not only were the engines uprated to 1,600-hp, car bodies were stretched to 54'0" (cab) and 53'2" (booster). These locomotives were built exclusively for Canadian National Railway.
The Mexican rail units are shown on the EXPORTs page.
