PRR 8671, AS-18AM, 1959
Title:  PRR 8671, AS-18AM, 1959
Description:  New Portage. Here is a photo by William Volkmer taken near the Muleshoe Curve on the New Portage Branch Line west of Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 29 October 1959. It was published originally in his (2019) book entitled "Pennsylvania Railroad-Best Of Bill Volkmer: Volume 3-Altoona," page 81. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #8671, #8674, and #8677. All are AS-18AM's built by the American Locomotive Company in 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower each. They are pushing an iron-ore train up the Allegheny Mountains to Gallitzin, where they will uncouple and return to East Altoona for yet another helper/pusher run up "The Mountain."

PRR 8671, AS-18AM, 1960
Title:  PRR 8671, AS-18AM, 1960
Description:  Sweetland. Here is duplicate 35mm color slide of a photo by David R. Sweetland that was taken near Gallitzin, Pennsylvania, during October of 1960. Shown here (R to L) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #8671, #8674, and #8663. All are AS-18AM's built by the American Locomotive Company during 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower each. In this context, they're pushing a westbound mixed-cargo freight train that is already passing through the Allegheny Tunnel; in a matter of minutes, though, they'll uncouple and return to East Altoona for yet another helper/pusher run up "The Mountain." In the left foreground is the link to the westbound New Portage Secondary Track.
