This is the builder’s plate on an older MTH New Haven ALCO DL-109 model with PS-2, probably 15 years old. #71446 - May 1940 seems correct. I will photograph the Sunset/3rd Rail ALCO PA-1 and post later.

Here are two pictures of my MTH ALCO PA-1 and its builder’s plate - #75318 – May 1947. This is also an older model with PS-2. It has the most legible builder’s plate of the ones I have photographed but I think that’s more a function of the photograph quality and focus rather than the model’s graphics. The only way I’m able to read any of these builder’s plates is by zooming in to the photograph. I can’t read them by looking at the models.
