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.
