PRR 7026, EFS-17M, 1965
Title:  PRR 7026, EFS-17M, 1965
Description:  Sunday. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 02 May 1965. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #7026, #9660, and #9819. All were built by EMD. #7026 is an EFS-17M built in 1955 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. #9660 and #9819 are EF-15A's rated at 1,500 horsepower each; #9660 was built in 1950, but #9819 was built in 1951. They are pulling a 128-car westbound mixed-cargo freight train with N-8 caboose #478039, plus pusher engines #8613 and #8614. This train is "sandwiched" in-between two moving trains: an eastbound coal train on the right, and a 129-car westbound mixed-cargo freight train on the left. The 4th Street Bridge is also visible in the background.

PRR 9819, EF-15A, 1966
Title:  PRR 9819, EF-15A, 1966
Description:  ELDO Action. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad trackage in the Eldorado section of Altoona, Pennsylvania, during January of 1966. Shown here is the railroad crossing at 58th Street in Eldorado. Visible in the distance are a switch, a shanty, another position-light signal, as well as a PRR train waiting for permission to proceed. These are the tracks connecting Altoona (to the front) and Hollidaysburg (to the rear). From 1850 to 1854, while the Horseshoe Curve was under construction, this was actually part of the PRR's main line between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
