looking for any info on this unit, seen in Healy, AK. Have never seen anything else like it in the diesel era, are/were there others, possibly a unique build or custom job? One of several alco cranes trolling around on what is now an all EMD road.

I don't think this is an Alco crane. I think it was made by American Hoist and Derrick. The current company web site is:

And here is a link to some ditching information:
http://books.google.com/books?id=pMk7AAAAMAAJ&pg=PA634&lpg=PA634&dq=American+Hoist+and+Derrick&source=bl&ots=4F6woWqJP4&sig=l0_eCJOd5YQtOatrhxh_5dEvqNc&hl=en&ei=PedGSti6PNKJtgfM7Iy9Ag&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2
 
Hope this helps.

did some research after posting, and came to the same conclusion. Another company site  http://www.aolcrane.com/cranehistory.html  
Still a unique find though! Thanks for the links
