Southern power rolls
Title:  Southern power rolls

Box Canyon Trestle and Dam
Title:  Box Canyon Trestle and Dam
Description:  The scenic highlight of the trip is Box Canyon trestle and dam. The bridge was built in 1911, the dam just below the bridge in 1955. The train stops on the bridge for a few minutes to let passengers take in the sights. Despite the scenic wonder, maintenance on this bridge is the main reason this run is ending after 2016.

Title:  PRR 9771, EF-15A, 1963
Description:  24th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 11 October 1963. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9771, #9687, and #7262. All were built by EMD. #9771 is an EF-15A built in 1951 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #9687 is an EH-15 built in 1949 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #7262 is an EFS-17M built in 1959 and rated at 1,750 horsepower. They are about to pass under the 24th Street Bridge with a 103-car mixed-cargo freight train on their way up the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. Partially visible on the left is SLOPE Tower.

RUT 611 (Finally!)
Title:  RUT 611 (Finally!)
Description:  The RUT 611 is one of Utah Railways true "road trains" which almost always uses six axle power as it travels from Provo to Ogden. Most of Utah Railways six axle power is still painted in their classic paint scheme, so it has been a goal of mine to catch this train in motion. Finally today my luck came together and I got to catch the 611 with a SD50 on the lead as it powered through Salt Lake City on the old Rio Grande main!

PRR 9838, EF-15A, 1965
Title:  PRR 9838, EF-15A, 1965
Description:  Winter. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 03 January 1965. Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9838, #9844-B, and #9834. All are EFP-15's built by EMD in 1952 and rated at 1,500 horsepower each. They are pulling an 83-car train under the 4th Street Bridge, and are about to begin climbing the Allegheny Mountains via the Horseshoe Curve to Gallitzin and points West. Bringing-up the rear are "pushers" #8667, #8666, and #8669. Visible on the left are a telephone box and a venerable black water tower, the last sign of the "Age of Steam" in this part of town.
