LRC 6900 on passenger train stopped Durand, MI depot LRC 6900 leads a passenger train out of Durand, MI

An eastbound passenger train lead by LRC 6900 pauses briefly at the Durand station on May 11, 1983. The letters LRC stood for Light, Rapid, Comfortable and was a new design for tilting the passenger cars through curves. The LRC locomotive used an Alco 251 engine. I think this was the last application of Alco engines in train service. The trains began operating in Canada in 1981. The locomotives were replaced by GE units and scrapped in 1990. Disk 117
