Alco RSD-15 "Alligator" doing what Alcos do best

I found this video on You Tube.

Aside from their fine and diverse collection of steam locomotives, electric streetcars, vintage freight and passenger train equipment, as well as vintage city transit buses...the Illinois Railway Museum is also home to some unique American diesel electric locomotives from railroading's past.

The museum's former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad EMD SW 7 yard switcher, pulls their recently restored Green Bay & Western Alco RSD 15 roadswitcher locomotive out for a test run after restoration in 2011.
