Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #8661, #5841, and two more E-7's whose numbers are not recorded. #8661 is an AS-18AM built by the American Locomotive Company in January of 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower. #5841 is an EP-20 built by GM-EMD in August of 1947 and rated at 2,000 horsepower. They are pulling a passenger train up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve, and are about to pass through one of the tunnels at Gallitzin on their way to Pittsburgh and points West.
