PRR 1361, K-4S, 1957
Title:  PRR 1361, K-4S, 1957
Description:  #1361. Here is a commercial photo of a Pennsylvania Railroad steam locomotive taken at the Juniata Erecting and Machine Shop in Altoona, Pennsylvania, during June of 1957. Shown here is PRR engine #1361, a K-4S (4-6-2) "Pacific" built in this very building during May of 1918 for passenger-only service. This photo was taken just before it was enshrined at the Horseshoe Curve on 08 June 1957. That's a difference of 39 years! During 1987 and 1988, engine #1361 was restored for service, and made some excursion runs in Central Pennsylvania. Certain safety concerns arose, however, which led to it being disassembled. It has yet to be reassembled/restored/resurrected! The photographer's name is not recorded.
