ALCO T-6 Diesel-Electric Switcher Locomotive
The Alco T6 (DL 440) was a diesel-electric locomotive of the switcher type rated at 1,000 horsepower (750 kW), that rode on two-axle trucks, having a B-B wheel arrangement.

The 'T' stood for 'Transfer', meaning this locomotive was capable of faster transition and higher sustained speeds than the regular 'S' - type yard switcher series.
