PRR 5631, AS-10AM, 1965
Title:  PRR 5631, AS-10AM, 1965
Description:  Derailment. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad locomotives in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 21 May 1965. Shown here (L to R) are the two derailed locomotives, PRR engines #5631 and #8890. Both were built by the American Locomotive Company in 1950 and rated at 1,000 horsepower each. #5631 is an AS-10AM while #8890 is an AS-10. They had just come down the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve with a mixed-cargo freight train when they split a switch in the 14th Street Interlocking. Because the train was going fairly slow at the time of the derailment, no one was injured seriously.

PRR 8677, AS-18AM, 1965
Title:  PRR 8677, AS-18AM, 1965
Description:  Derailment. Here is an original photo that I took of Pennsylvania Railroad trains in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 21 May 1965. Shown here on the left is PRR engine #8677, an AS-18AM built by the American Locomotive Company in 1958 and rated at 1,800 horsepower. It is coupled to the "eastern" work train and steam-powered crane that are rerailing the derailed cars and locomotives of the eastbound freight train on the next track over. Visible in the center (L to R) are the two derailed locomotives, PRR engines #5631 and #8890. Both were built by the American Locomotive Company in 1950 and rated at 1,000 horsepower each. #5631 is an AS-10AM while #8890 is an AS-10. At this point in the clean-up process, they remain coupled to a single box car: CGW 9166. Visible in the background are two of the original PRR 12th Street Car Shop buildings. A portion of 10th Avenue is visible in the immediate foreground.
