My great-grandfather, James Charters, was an engineer on the NYCRR's Michigan Central Line.  I have a photo of him in front of what appears to be an Alco 4-6-0 on the day of his retirement, but I have very little other information about him or his career.  
 
Question: Is this an Alco?  I'm only guessing and would like to be corrected if I'm wrong.  Knowing the make and model for certain would help my research.
 
Any leads or suggestions to research would be welcomed.
 
Thank you.
