Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ALCO Century Series locomotives were a line of locomotives produced by Alco during the 1960s. Production began in 1963, and ended in 1968, shortly before Alco ended locomotive production and shut down. A total of 665 locomotives, in ten variants, were produced over the five years of production. During the 1950s, EMD had become the major player in the North American diesel locomotive market, with Alco relegated to second place. This was largely due their Model 244 diesel engine suffering from significant reliability issues. In response to these issues, Alco in 1951 approved development of a new engine design, the Model 251, which was put through five years of testing before entering production in three sizes (1,800 horsepower, 2,000 horsepower, and 2,400 horsepower) in a new line of locomotives. By 1961, however, General Electric had launched their first road locomotive, the U25B, which rapidly propelled them into second place in the market, behind EMD.
