Analog (DC) version features NMRA 21 pin plug for DCC, DCC/Sound version features LokSound Select Dual-Mode decoder which allows locomotive to be used on DC as well as on DCC layouts.

DCC information: With the advanced lighting in the Bowser Alco C-430 it is not possible to light all the outputs with an 8 pin plug decoder. An 8 pin DCC plug only allows for 3 total light outputs. Any additional outputs would need to be hardwired. The Bowser C-430 uses 6 lighting outputs. In order to easily operate all the lights we recommend using an ESU LokPilot V4.0 DCC Stock number 91654 which is preprogrammed to match the speed and lighting functions of the Bowser Sound equipped C-430 Locomotives. These decoders can be purchased from any hobby shop.

Lehigh Valley July 68 scheme

In July of 1968, the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company received ALCo sales proposal "DL OA-306"
for 10 Century 430 locomotives with high adhesion trucks. priced at $224,375.00 each.

We believe our paint scheme represents Lehigh Valley's intentions if they had purchased the C430.

Rock Island

According to an article in "Diesel Era", the Rock Island placed an order for 10 C430's (S.O. 21278 for 10 units to the Rock Island)

This order was canceled prior to ALCo closing its plant. We believe our paint scheme represents Rock Island's intentions had they purchased the C430.
