    Always nice to see ALCO’s still around. Nice steamer. Correct it should be Inside the Cab or Inside the firebox.

    where d you see an ALKO steemer? This one is a russian design, being precisely a russian empire design, although it was in production for almost half a century (being cheap and reliable) from 1914 to around 1950. ALKO stemers importen in russia where marked as “E”, not this “reversed “E” – cyrillik letter pronounced as [Yea]
