PRR 9700, BF-15A, 1964
Title:  PRR 9700, BF-15A, 1964
Description:  8th Street. Here is an original photo that I took of a Pennsylvania Railroad train in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on 12 January 1964. Shown here (R to L) are PRR engines #9700, #2014-B, #9700-B, and #2012. All were built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works. #9700 is a BF-15A built in 1950 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #2014-B is BF-16 built in 1952 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. #9700-B is a BF-15A built in 1950 and rated at 1,500 horsepower. #2012 is BF-16 built in 1952 and rated at 1,600 horsepower. They are about to pass under the 8th Street Bridge in Juniata with a 100-car coal train destined for Enola and points East. Visible in the immediate background are at least eight cabin cars and PRR engine #7923, an ES-12 built by EMD in 1957 and rated at 1,200 horsepower. Several ALCo road switchers are on the move and will soon pass the Juniata E&M Shop on the far right.

Title:  PRR 9700, BF-15A, c. 1964
Description:  Byerly. Here is a duplicate 35mm color slide of a photo by Fred Byerly that was taken in Toleod, Ohio, perhaps in 1964. Photo Caption: "Baldwin DR4-4-15 #9700, 1500-hp, at Toledo, Ohio." Shown here (L to R) are Pennsylvania Railroad engines #9700 and two more "Sharks" whose numbers are not recorded. #9700 is a BF-15A built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in April of 1950, rated at 1,500 horsepower, and retired in February of 1965 after just 15 years of service.

Title:  "Horseshoe Curve," Page 6, 2006
Description:  Here is a photo by Mr. Gary R. Zuters. It was included in a 24-page booklet entitled "World Famous Horseshoe Curve" that was published in 2006 by The Railroad Press, page 6. Partial Caption: "The Baldwin Locomotive Works of Eddystone, Pennsylvania, called them RF-15's, but the rest of the world called them 'Sharknoses' for obvious reasons. Here, a perfectly matched set of A-B-A sharks led by class unit #9700 is thundering uphill with a freight in April 1959." Shown here (L to R) are PRR engines #9700 and two other units whose numbers are not recorded. All were built by Baldwin. #9700 is a BF-15A built in 1950 and rated at 1,500 horsepower.
