A New Engine House For Delaware Lackawanna Alcos

Scranton, Pennsylvania is home to the largest operating fleet of Alco locomotives in the world and they’re moving to a new home.. Their current residence on Breck Street (shown above) has been the mainstay of the fleet for nearly 30 years..

The new engine house where the fleet is moving to is located on the north side of town in a space that was once home to a Delaware & Hudson roundhouse and turntable..

Construction of the new engine facility began in the summer of 2019 after major track improvements were made to the Green Ridge Yard (located behind the engine facility) which included adding a new main line track..

The yellow MOW vehicle shown on the old engine house rip tracks in the photo (above) was spotted sitting on the yard lead track at the new engine house (above).
