1965 Alco started producing the 3,000 hp. Century 630 Locomotive. It was produced
concurrently with the 2,800 hp. C-628, but it incorporated an advanced GE a.c.
traction alternator which provided the extra 200 hp. The most distinctive spotting
feature of the C-630 is the large aftercooler radiator housing which extends above
the roofline (the aftercooler radiators enhanced the performance of the locomotive
while operating under a heavy load). The C-630 also featured a modified cab which
offered more interior space for the crew. Through the end of production in the
late 1960s, a total of 133 units were produced for railroads in the US and Canada.
different variations are available; a standard DC version and one equipped with
a factory-installed DCC decoder board.
