PRR 2511, GF-25, 1964
Title:  PRR 2511, GF-25, 1964
Description:  Wye Switches. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train at the Wye Switches in Duncansville, Pennsylvania, on 05 October 1964. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #2511, #9546-B, and #9686. #2511 is a GF-25 built by GE in 1962 and rated at 2,500 horsepower. #9546-B and #9686 are EH-15's built by EMD and rated at 1,500 horsepower each; the B-unit was built in 1948, but the A-unit was built in 1949. These three Diesels, two freight cars, PRR caboose #477781, and three ALCO helper engines have just arrived from Altoona and have stopped in the middle of US Route 22 so that the fireman can call-in to request clearance to proceed up the New Portage Branch for a short distance and then stop. After that, they will back into the Hollidaysburg Yards, pick-up a freight train, and then pull it up the New Portage Branch to Gallitzin and points West.
