PRR 2518, GF-25, 1964
Title:  PRR 2518, GF-25, 1964
Description:  17th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 25 April 1964. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #2518 and 32524. Both are GF-25's built by General Electric in 1962 and rated at 2,500 horsepower each. They are pulling a 111-car train of empty hopper cars past the PRR's 12th Street Shops on their way up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. The caboose is #477472.
