Jim Satterwhite General These are ALCO RS-1s built for the Republic of Iran Railways in the late 1940s. 9/17/2009 7:55:02 PM
William Grimes General This is an ALCo MRS-1. If you list it as USAX B-2080 it is already in the system. EMD also did a version of the Military Road Switcher-1. 9/26/2009 9:34:49 PM
William Grimes General The Army did have RS-1s that was built for the Iran Railways, but this is not one of them. The MRS1 was built to Soviet Railway "Standards" during the cold war. Many saw servie over seas but never in Iran. 9/26/2009 9:37:12 PM
