"Surround Yourself with Quality People."

The "quotes" used here are lessons learned by David A. Kramer from his father Albert P. "Al" Kramer (1916-2001). Al Kramer (pictured here on the right) was a respected businessman and longtime ALCO expert who did business and lived life by the principles shared here. He saw the steam to diesel conversion in locomotives, and during WWII put the first diesel locomotives into service in Persia (Iran) and the Middle East. He was recruited by General "Ike" Eisenhower to come back to the States to oversee the U.S. Army locomotive fleet repair during the war. After a lifetime in the locomotive industry, Al retired with an excellent reputation. Diesel Locomotive Company strives to carry on his excellent reputation.
