Over the years, the interplant railroad of ALCOA, located in [where else] Alcoa TN has hosted a bevy of end cab switchers. There have been ex SP locomotives with their unique light packages, 'process locomotives' from CLC, and now a switcher from Larry's Truck and Electric.

The short train is approaching the North Plant, having delivered aluminum ingots to the South Plant for processing. Those ingots ride on the blue cradle cars on the rear of this short train.
