The prototype WM #144 was built by ALCO/American Locomotive Works, Schnectady, N.Y. in December, 1946 and was as a yard switcher in many locations along the WM until retired and sold for scrap in 1972.

The Alco S4 were 1,000 horsepower diesel electric switcher locomotives produced by Alco and Canadian licensee Montreal Locomotive Works. This locomotive was powered by an Alco 539 turbocharged 6 cylinder diesel engine and the S4 has standard AAR type A switcher trucks. Alco's 1,000 horsepower S4 switcher was the fourth entry in the company's highly successful "S" series of diesels. Their sturdy construction and ease of maintenance made them popular with a wide variety of railroads.
